I am going to be doing a comparison on multiple relationships under the Ethics Codes for Psychologist section 3.05, and The Association for Addiction Professionals section l-11. They both seem to be pretty consistent with each other with a few minor differences. In the NAADAC l-11 it states that “addiction professionals shall make every effort to avoid multiple relationships with a client” (NAADAC: The Association for Addiction Professionals NCC AP: The National Certification Commission for Addiction Professionals CODE OF ETHICS: Approved 10.09.2016). In the Psychologists Code of Ethics 3.05, it states “A psychologist refrains from entering into a multiple relationship if the multiple relationship could reasonably be expected to impair the …show more content…
The Code of Ethics for Psychologists 3.05 is a little more vague. In l-11 it states “Such relationships include, but are not limited to, members of the Provider’s immediate or extended family, business associates of the professional, or individuals who have a close personal relationship with the professional or the professional’s family” (NAADAC: The Association for Addiction Professionals NCC AP: The National Certification Commission for Addiction Professionals CODE OF ETHICS: Approved 10.09.2016). In the 3.05 it states “If a psychologist finds that, due to unforeseen factors, a potentially harmful multiple relationship has arisen, the psychologist takes reasonable steps to resolve it with due regard for the best interests of the affected person and maximal compliance with the Ethics Code” (Ethical Principles of Psychologists and Code of Conduct. Adopted August 21, 2002 Effective June 1, 2003). This is helpful, but it is not as specific as the code in the NAADAC l-11. Also in the NAADAC l-11, it went as far specifically to state “When extending these boundaries, Providers take appropriate professional precautions such as informed consent, consultation, supervision, and documentation to ensure that their judgment is not impaired and no harm occurs” (NAADAC: The Association for Addiction Professionals NCC AP: The

One professional organization that helps counselors with appropriate ethical approaches in decision making would be The American Counseling Association (ACA). Indeed, the ACA is filled with important ethical principles counselors need to adhere too. One important ethical principle is for counselors to be apprehensive of “Accurate Results”. This section makes sure the counselors are planning, conducting, and reporting research accurately (American Counseling Association, 2014, p. 15). The second ethical principle is “Research Records Custodian”.
The opening to the HBO documentary named “Addiction,” gives us a brief understanding to what the film will be based on, substance addiction. It goes in depth into understanding how addiction is a real medical condition, that is being understood and treated as a brain disease. It also tells us that it is associated with “The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation,” a foundation that is only for the use of the public’s health. The documentary is also presented by “The National Institute on Drug Abuse and The National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism.”
Barnes may not want to engage in therapy and feel mistrust towards the social worker and her husband b) Social worker completely dismisses the comments Mr. Barnes has made about the affair.

In 1971 President Richard Nixon declared War on Drugs in an effort to combat the increasing use of illegal drugs in the United States. In 1986, in response to the surge of crack cocaine that was flooding American inner cities, Congress passed the Anti-Drug Abuse Act, which handed out harsher penalties for crack cocaine offenses than for powder cocaine offenses. For sentencing purposes, they used the 100:1 rule, the law said that one gram of crack cocaine be treated as equivalent to 100 grams of powder cocaine. Because crack cocaine offenders tended to be black and powder cocaine offenders tended to be white, the law seemed just to target African Americans.
Not only that, but when a patient begins therapy, their therapist is required to tell them all the things that if they say, the therapist is required by law to tell the police. Therefore, because the therapist is outwardly saying, “If you tell me you have a plan to cause harm to another human being I have to tell the police,” in my opinion, it is no longer considered a breach of confidentiality. The patient knows about their therapists obligation ahead of time. The therapist is giving the patient all of the information, and the patient can decide what to do with it.
This book incorporates a myriad of ethical violations, the majority occur when the character assumes that they know best how to avoid them. This is what I found most amusing about this story, those that wrote the book about ethics were the ones that violated them most. Sometimes intentionally, other times after intense justification of their actions. Of the main characters in the book, I figured that Ernest Lash would be the one to cross the line with Carolyn through his new course of treatment; transparency, and disclosure. A clinician revealing too much of oneself in a counseling session, as evidenced by the book, can be very dangerous territory.
In the therapeutic and forensic psychology practice, there comes a time where a situation arises in which there is no right or wrong course of action. All psychologists and therapists adhere to a framework of ethical guidelines and principles that assist them in different situations to allow them to recognize the highest ethical way to conduct a relationship, evaluation, or analysis. Making a decision in these areas of expertise can be a conflict when one does not understand ethical dilemmas associated with a certain choice. The 8-step decision making model is aimed to involve clients in a collaborative partnership. This process allows the practitioner to determine several factors that ranges from relationship problems, to issues involved,
An Ethical Problem can be defined as when a professional is faced or/placed in a situation in which the decision could possibly affect the client negatively, thus this ethical problem forces the counsellor/professional to reflect on what the right thing to do is under the specific circumstances (Allan, 2011). The case study stated that Thumi wants to continue having intercourse with Anthony as normal whilst knowing that she is HIV positive, this is the ethical problem. By having this information (that Thumi is HIV positive and what she intends to do leads to the ethical dilemma. The journal of American psychotherapy stipulated that counsellors are frequently faced with dilemmas, how they respond to these situations can either be ethical or
In today’s society everybody knows somebody that has been touched by drugs at some point. Whether that person is the abuser, the family, friends, acquaintances, or just a member of the community that is becoming a playground for drugs; everyone is a part of the system of substance abuse. What is substance abuse? Substance abuse can be defined as an overindulgence or dependence of an addictive substance, especially alcohol or drugs. Majority of people believe that a substance abuser chooses to become addicted and stay addicted to a substance.
Professional counselors have an enormous responsibility to uphold the public trust and so pursue high levels of training, education, and supervision in the ethical application of counseling practices, since counselors often practice in private settings with very little oversight. A vital ethical element in counseling is confidentiality. Confidentiality builds a private and safe environment of trust which is crucial for counseling to be fruitful. As a counselor in my future practice I believe confidentiality is key to a successful therapeutic relationship, which leads to a successful course of treatment.
There are different forms of relationships formed in the field of psychology between psychologists and clients. In the modern day, dual relationship and multiple relationship have become a crucial topic due to their usefulness in solving a client 's problem. During my research on the topic, I discovered a few posts that explained the differences between dual relationships and multiple relationships with the main term being the intent. This paper will establish the differences between the two forms of relationships, examples in each relationship, and any forms of violations according to APA code of ethics.
Ethics • The first ethical red flag that went up as I was reading scenario 2 was the “Do No Harm.” Instead of embracing this person with the love of Christ, the counsel refuses to see him, due to his religious beliefs, claiming that he is a Christian counselor and that the client is not a Christian. Which could also be interpreted as discrimination. • The counselor acted unethical when he judged the man by his denomination and refused service to him.
