The 2014 ACA Code of Ethics Says What? Competence and Referrals in Counseling

Jun 14, 2017 12:00pm ‐ Jun 14, 2017 1:00pm

Identification: WEBA17001

Credits: None available.

The 2014 ACA Code of Ethics outlines the ethical responsibilities of its members and provides guidance to counselors in fulfilling their professional responsibilities. The ethics code is revised every seven to 10 years to reflect changes in society; changes in the way we, as professional counselors, view our relationships with our clients; and our evolving view of competent practice.

As the counseling profession matures, actions that the American Counseling Association takes help crystalize who we are as a profession. Ethics, foundational moral principles and professional values are central to who we are, what we believe and how we should carry out our responsibilities to others. Each iteration of the ACA Code of Ethics, beginning with the 1961 code, has attempted to highlight that.

ACA’s ethics codes have always put clients first. The 2014 ACA Code of Ethics built upon previous codes to further clarify the expectations for ethical behavior by counselors. The current code makes it clear that counseling is about the client, not the counselor.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Develop an understanding of some changes to the 2014 Code of Ethics;
  2. Understand the issues regarding personal values in counseling; and
  3. Gain an understanding of competence and referrals.

American Counseling Association: First Budget Briefing

May 25, 2017 4:00pm ‐ May 25, 2017 5:00pm

Identification: WEB170525

Credits: None available.

President Trump's proposed education budget would eliminate all funding for the Student Support and Academic Enrichments (SSAE) grant program (Title IV, Part A), a federal program that just received its first appropriation last year. The SSAE program is a block grant intended to help school districts provide a well-rounded education by funding school-based mental health programs, school counseling programs, and drug and violence prevention programs. The American Counseling Association is extremely concerned about the administration’s proposal, and we have urged Congress to reject the President’s budget and fund SSAE at its authorized level of $1.65 billon. Attend this free webinar to:

  • Gain a better understanding of the road ahead for funding of school counseling programs.
  • Hear expert analysis of the budget process and the need to invest in school counseling (and education in general).
  • Understand how the same budget process, timeline, and concerns apply to other federal programs such as Medicare and Medicaid.
