The second edition of the OTPF also emphasizes that humans are occupational beings for the sake of one’s health and independence (AOTA, 2008). At this particular outpatient clinic, the OTPF is used to identify and explain the meaning of certain terms such as IADL or purposeful activity to clients, family members, other practitioners, and insurance companies. This framework is used when processing claims for insurance companies, and it can be seen when therapists use specific language to explains how therapeutic activities support health and function. When OTs collaborate at this facility, they use common language pertaining to OT which allows them to maintain service competency. The goal of the therapists at this facility is to work with clients so that they can perform their occupations as efficiently as
According to NASW Code of Ethics 1.09.c Sexual Relationships, “Social workers should not engage in sexual activities or sexual contact with former clients because of the potential for harm to the client”. However, the ACA Code of Ethics A.5.c. Sexual and/or Romantic Relationships with Former Clients states “sexual and/or romantic counselor-client interactions or relationships with former clients, their romantic partners, or their family members are prohibited for a period of 5 years following the past professional contact”.

The ACA Code of Ethics is a set of standards for professional helpers to follow. The Code “reflects the counseling profession’s understanding of the responsibilities inherent in the covenantal relationship with society” (Ponton & Duba, 2009). This Code is a set of standards to basically keep everyone on the same page when working with clients. Upon reading the Code, I was intrigued with the Bartering component found in section A.10.d. I did not realize that bartering was allowed at such a professional level.
This indicates that when a field is categorized as a professional practice, it is embodied and controlled by ethical standards to ensure that these professional practices reach a high level of quality (Corey, Corey, & Callanan, 2003). For advance countries such as the United States and United Kingdom who have long been practicing counselling, the code of ethics has been shaped and constantly changing according to the need to safeguard the interests of practitioners and clients.
