Abstract

Issues of faith in counseling practice are increasingly accepted as important to clients and the outcomes they obtain. Similarly, counselors must become increasingly competent in their awareness, knowledge, and skills as they offer help, hope, and healing to their clients. Christian counselors face unique challenges, but resources are available to assist them as they serve with competence, devotion, and sensitivity. This session reviews the 2014 update to the AACC Code of Ethics, identifies challenges in its implementation, and provides direction for ethical counseling practice using a case study approach.

Participants will:

  1. Review the 2014 update to the AACC Code of Ethics
  2. Analyze similarities and differences between the AACC code and other professional codes of ethics
  3. Formulate ethical strategies for navigating challenges in their counseling practices
