Ethical Standards Of Counseling
- Written by Joe Zychik
Ethical, effective counseling meets these standards:
It makes sense.
It deals with the here and now.
You do not have to go to meetings every day.
You overcome the addiction and get on with your life.
The people advising you practice their own advice.
When you apply the advice given to you, it works.
You are not pushed.
The counseling is tailored to fit your specific needs.
You are able to maintain your privacy without having to confess in front of groups of strangers.
Your counselor does not pry where he or she doesn't belong.
Your counselor does not create a dependent relationship.
Your counselor listens carefully and understands you.
Your counselor does not make passes at you.
Everything you do in the counseling is a result of your choice, your timing and your needs.
The real-life application of these standards is demonstrated in
