The Therapeutic Relationship

Understanding the professional, ethical, and legal implications of value-based referrals are important before making decisions to refer clients to another counselor. This assignment will help you learn to objectively evaluate literature and ACA’s position on value-based referrals. Reflecting and examining your values are essential when facing a values-based conflict. This assignment aims to explore the professional and ethical issues of counseling when counselor-client value differences exist within the therapeutic relationship.   Instructions To begin this assignment, you will need to access and read the following sources, the first 3 of which can be found in the Module/Week 2 Reading & Study 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 273 at “Embracing the Tension of Humanity” to the end.     Your paper must be in current APA format including a title page and reference page. The paper should be 3–6 pages in length. (This does not include title page and reference page). Your paper must cite all 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’s 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? Population List   ____1.   A person with fundamentalist religious beliefs. ____2.   A woman who says that if she could turn her life over to Christ she would find peace. ____3.   A person who shows little conscience development, is strictly interested in his/her own advancement, and uses others for personal gain. ____4.   A gay or lesbian couple wanting to work on conflicts in their relationship. ____5.   A man who wants to leave his wife and children for the sake of sexual adventures with other women. ____6.   A woman who has decided to leave her husband and children to gain independence. ____7.   A woman who has decided to get an abortion but wants to process her feelings around it. ____8.   A teenager who is having unsafe sex and sees no problem with the behavior. ____9.   A high school student who is sent to you by his parents because they suspect he is using drugs. ____10.
