Directions: The following cases are intended to facilitate the development of your ethical analysis and resolution capacities. Review each of the scenarios and indicate whether you “agree” or “disagree” with the counselor’s action. Then, explainbriefly—in one paragraph—your ethical rationale for your agreement or disagreement. You’re encouraged to cite appropriate ethical principles and/or code of ethics standards. You may access the ACA Code of Ethics and other ethics code at the WEBLINKS button on this website. After you finish you can compare your response and rationale with our response and our rationales for each of these vignettes.
Since there is rarely a right or wrong answer for most ethical dilemmas and since the cases provide limited detail, it is possible that you can validly argue for an answer and/or explanation that differs from ours.
