Ethics are involved in all of our interpersonal decisions and they impact every aspect of our professional and personal lives. In this course you will examine the Ethical Decision-Making Model and the Code of Ethics set out in The Canadian Standards and Guidelines for Career Development Practitioners. You will consider the relevance and application of the code to career development services. The Code of Ethics for career practitioners sets guidelines for three key areas: professional competency and conduct, client relationships and professional relationships. You will be challenged to explore ethical considerations in each of these areas of practice.
Finally, you will apply the Decision-Making Model to ethical dilemmas and discuss the broader implications of ethics for your work/life.
