Ensuring Ethical Practice: Guidelines for Mental Health Counselors in Private PracticeJournal of Mental Health Counseling (2013)
AbstractSince mental health counselors in private practice often work in relative isolation, it is especially important that they attend to ethical issues. This article reviews four dimensions of ethical knowledge: the foundation of ethical actions, counselors as agents of ethical action, the need to establish a decision-making process, and the importance of sustaining ethical practice by keeping current with clinical developments and attending to their own well-being.
