The purpose of this project is to present active learning activities and instructional strategies that will allow counselling students to: (a) become familiar with ethical codes, (b) understand their application to their professional conduct, (c) strive to adhere to the codes' principles and values, (d) translate formal codes and standards into day-to-day professional practice, and (e) critique the codes for applicability in real-life scenarios. This project explores the following ethics topics: multicultural and diversity issues, client rights and counsellor responsibilities, confidentiality, boundary and multiple relationship issues, professional competence and training, supervision and consultation, research ethics, couples and family therapy, group work, and rural counselling. The elements used to explore the ethics topics include: discussion questions, case studies, activities, assignments, and annotated bibliographies.
