COUN 6705 - Professional Identity and Ethics in Counseling♦

Students explore and discuss a variety of topics, including history, philosophy, cultural dynamics, consultation, trends in professional and mental health counseling, and client and counselor advocacy with a focus on the counselor’s role as social change agent. Students also address the counseling profession’s ethical standards, devoting special attention to the American Counseling Association (ACA) Code of Ethics and counselor ethical decision-making processes. Sharpening scholarly writing and critical-thinking skills, students synthesize knowledge and apply course concepts through biographical and professional identity essays.
