An ethics challenge for school counselors

Janet Hicks, Charles Crews

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Ethical issues arise more often for school counselors than for those who work in other settings (Remley, 2002). The challenge of working not only with minors but also with other stakeholders including parents, teachers, school administrators, and community members sets the stage for potential legal and ethical dilemmas. Awareness and adherence to ethical codes, therefore, is critical if school counselors are to make appropriate, ethical decisions (Bodenhorn, 2006; Capuzzi, 2002; Glosoff & Pate, 2002). This article enhances school counselors’ knowledge of ethical codes by using actual cases as submitted by school counselors. The issues are presented in a quiz format to further discussion and relate each scenario to particular ethical codes.
