Ethical Vignette Paper 1

ETHICAL VIGNETTE PAPER 1 INSTRUCTIONS
To complete this assignment, you will need to access 3 sources:

•    Your state board of professional counseling website. For more information on how to access your state board of professional counseling, search for your state board of professional counseling or marriage and family therapy (e.g., “Texas State Board of Professional Counseling”). Once you have found the website, you will need to find the prerequisite requirements for licensure. You may have to look around the website to find the information you need. Try looking under terms such as “application for licensure” or “laws, policies, rules.” Additionally, see “How to Find Your State Board of Counseling’s Rules and Regulations” under Additional Materials in Modules/Weeks 4 and 6.
•    The American Counseling Association’s (ACA) Code of Ethics.
A video vignette (this is from the website assigned in the Reading & Study folder of the module/week in which this paper is due). Legal and Ethical Issues for Mental Health Professionals, Vol. 1: Confidentiality, Privilege, Reporting, and Duty to Warn

Make sure to include the section identifiers (e.g., ACA Code A.1.b) where you obtained your information.
b. What does your state say regarding:
•    Confidentiality and its limits?
•    Duty to warn?
•    Mandatory reporting?
•    Under what circumstances are you required to break confidentiality?
Make sure to include the section identifiers where you obtained your information.
3.    Reaction & Action:
a. What were your thoughts and reactions as a result of this assignment?
b. Describe how you will apply what you have learned from the video, the ACA Code of Ethics and your state board rules/regulations to your future practice as a professional counselor.

Your paper must be clearly written and well-thought-out, with proper grammar, spelling, and sentence structure. You must include a title page, abstract, and reference page with at least 2 references.

When you have completed your paper, save it as a Microsoft Word document under your name and assignment title (Example: Doe_J_Ethical_Vignette_Paper_1). Submit your paper through SafeAssign using the draft link provided in Module/Week 4. Your goal is to get a SafeAssign similarity index of less than 25%. When your report is less than 25% matching, submit your final paper through SafeAssign using the regular (non-draft) link. If the final paper you submit has a similarity index greater than 25%, it may indicate either unintentional or intentional plagiarism. You may be contacted by your instructor.
