This course provides an overview of common ethical frameworks and theories. The focus is on identifying and analyzing ethical dilemmas facing the individual therapist and on the application of ethical principles, the APTA Code of Ethics, and the Guide for Professional Conduct to these dilemmas. The analysis also takes into account the duties, rights, and character traits that individual therapists use in solving ethical dilemmas for him/herself. This course includes aspects of constitutional, federal, state, and case law as they apply to the individual therapist, as well as how they are congruent with ethical principles.
