The purpose of this assignment is for you to learn how to apply both the ACA Code of Ethics and your state board code of ethics to common ethical scenarios.
Your paper must be in current APA format. The body of your paper must be 1–2 pages, the abstract must be 150–250 words, and your paper must include at least 2 references. Citations for both ACA and the state code of ethics must be included as the 2 required references.
Note that the title page, abstract, and reference page do not count toward the required page length. Your paper must be well-thought-out and demonstrate critical thinking. Also, all references must be from professional sources (professional journals and professional texts; no informal websites).
Follow the link in the Module/Week 5 Reading & Study folder in order to view video entitled “Whose Records?”
Divide your paper into the following headings and answer the questions:
· Should the counselor give the client her records? Why?
Applicable ACA Codes
· Which ethics codes for the ACA apply to this scenario? (Be sure to include the code numbers)
Applicable State Codes
· Which ethics codes for your state practice act apply to this scenario? (Be sure to include the code numbers)
When you have completed your paper, save it as a Microsoft Word document under your name and assignment title (Example: Doe_J_Ethical_Minute_Paper).
Submit your paper via the SafeAssign draft link in Module/Week 5. Wait until the link indicates that SafeAssign has analyzed your paper and prepared a report. Once the report has generated, go back to the report and evaluate it. You will notice that SafeAssign often matches on headings, titles, and references. If you see matches on entire sentences or paragraphs that are not enclosed in quotation marks, then you have unintentionally plagiarized. You will need to go back and re-write those sections in your own words.
Submit the final paper using the second SafeAssign link. If the final paper you submit contains entire sentences or paragraphs that have a high similarity index to other sources, it may indicate either unintentional or intentional plagiarism. You may be contacted by your instructor.
Submit your final assignment via SafeAssign by 11:59 p.m. (ET) on Sunday of Module/Week 5.
