Ethical Practice for Marriage and Family Therapy and Professional Counseling

Mental health professionals today face many complex ethical considerations related to a host of factors: increasing client diversity, new methods of providing services including distance counseling and therapy, new forms of digital technology, as well as the use of social media. The dynamics of a complex modern practice require counselors and therapists to reconsider issues of confidentiality, informed consent, multiple relationships, patient privacy, and records security. The practitioner must keep pace with revised ethical standards of practice and the needs of an increasingly diverse population. A working knowledge and daily application of revised ethical guidelines is required of all mental health counselors, therapists, and staff to provide the highest level of service to their clients.
