In this assignment, you will analyze the difference between morals, values, and ethics. In a 3- to 4-page paper, address the following:
- Define morals, values, and ethics. Provide three examples (one of each), relevant to the work of a professional counselor, which clearly differentiate the three.
- Identify specific ethical codes, which relate to values. Use ethical codes, as well as peer-reviewed articles, to identify three examples where values, either of the counselor or client, may surface in counseling.
- Evaluate how you will balance “being yourself” and be respectful of your clients’ value systems. Consider whether it is truly possible for counseling to be value-free.
- Include and discuss at least three peer-reviewed scholarly resources, which outline best practices for working with clients’ values as part of the counseling process.
Your final product will be in a Microsoft Word document and be approximately 3–4 pages in length. Utilize three to four sources from professional literature in your research.
