Use the prompt each week to guide your heading titles and organize the content of your initial post under the appropriate headings. Remember to use scholarly research from peer-reviewed articles that is current. I have also attached my discussion rubric so you can see how to make full points.

Discussion – Week 3

NCDA Ethical Standards

The authors of Ethics Chapter in the course text claim that while conducting research for the chapter, they found a paucity of sources dedicated to ethical and legal issues specifically aimed at vocational/career counseling. Given the likelihood of a counselor encountering a client with vocational/career issues, this Discussion will focus your attention on the material in the text and on the ethical standards from NCDA, which are dedicated to vocational/career counseling.

To prepare for this Discussion:

  • Review the chapter on Ethics, and      compare the NCDA current ethical code with      the current ethical code of your discipline      (either ACA or APA)
  • Given your specific specialty      area, work setting, and client population*, select two individual      standards (one from the NCDA Code and one from the ACA or APA Code) that      you think are most important to adhere to and explain      why.
  • Then select two individual      standards (one from the NCDA Code and one from the ACA or APA Code) that      you think would be most challenging to adhere to, given      your specialty area, work setting, and client population

With these thoughts in mind:

Post by Day 4 a brief summary of each of your selections. Then explain why you chose each standard. Comment on any differences you found between the NCDA and the ACA or APA Codes of Ethics.

Note: In the subject line of your post, place the letter and number of each of the standards you selected, along with which code they come from (e.g., NCDA B.1.c. and ACA F.5.b, etc.)

Be sure to support your postings and responses with specific references to the Learning Resources.
