This course will review CCPA’s code of ethics and standards of practice, providing an essential foundation for ethical practice. Students will review and apply the CCPA ethical decision-making model to case vignettes that include a variety of ethical dilemmas and complex counselling challenges involving “shades of grey.” For counsellors who haven’t previously completed an ethics course recognized by CCPA, this self-directed, online course serves as a foundation for the Ethics Refresher course, which is more in-depth and instructor-led.
“The Ethics Primer is helpful for professionals to discover how much they know about professional ethics and identify where the learning gaps are.” – Anonymous, Ethics Primer Student
