Purpose: The purpose of this assignment is to explore the professional and ethical issues of counseling and referring when dealing with counselor-client value differences.

Directions:  To begin this assignment, you will need to access and read the following sources that are located in the Reading and Study folder for Module/Week 2 and the Assignment Instructions folder:

  1. Kocet and Herlihy’s article on values based ethical decisions: Kocet, M. M., & Herlihy, B. J. (2014). Addressing value‐based conflicts within the counseling relationship: A decision‐making model. Journal of Counseling & Development, 92(2), 180-186.
  2. The American Counseling Association’s (ACA) position on referrals: Martz, E., & Kaplan, D. (2014). New responsibilities when making referrals. Counseling Today, 57(4), 24-25.
  3. Sells, J. N., & Hagedorn, W. B. (2016). CACREP accreditation, ethics, and the affirmation of both religious and sexual identities: A response to Smith and Okech. Journal of Counseling & Development, 94(3), 265-279.

For this article you need to focus on the material starting on page 173 at “Embracing the Tension of Humanity” to the end.

  1. The Problem/Population list found below

Your paper must be in current APA format including a title page, abstract and reference page. The paper should be 3–6 pages in length. (This does not include title page, abstract and reference page). Your paper must cite both articles.

Divide your paper into the headings below and address each question under each heading:

Summarize (1–2 pages)

In this section, summarize what you have read by condensing the three articles. Prove that you have comprehended the material by writing a clear, brief, summary of the main points of each source. A summarization is not a commentary; rather, it is an insightful précis of the longer, more elaborate article. It must provide a clear overview of the material.

Reflect (1–2 pages)  

In this section reflect on what you just read and answer the following questions:

  • Having read the articles, what new realizations and/or questions occurred for you?
  • How do you feel about the ACA position of not referring clients based on value differences?
  • Because referrals based on value differences are not ethical under the American Counseling Associations (your profession) ethics codes, read the list below of common populations and problems encountered in counseling. What personal and professional dilemmas, around specific populations or problems, might this pose for you?
