The video that you saw contains a role play of a 13 year-old who is pregnant and talking to a counselor. Counselors recognize the need to balance the ethical and legal rights of minor clients to make choices, their capacity to give assent to receive services. Counselors also recognize the importance of building a collaborative relationship and parental or familial legal rights and responsibilities to protect these clients and make decisions on their behalf. Keeping this in mind, discuss the following points in your post:
State which one of the six moral principles in the ACA Code of Ethics that this role play most closely illustrates and support your choice.
Assume that this is an initial consultation and that the services are pro bono (free). After reading the article provided in the module, state the reason you think there is or is not a legal issue.
Read the ACA Code of Ethics sections A.2.d. and B.5.b. What are the ethical issues involved?
As a counselor you want to provide services to this minor in a way that would meet best practice standards and the law. How might you begin to work with this client?
Post should consist of at least 200 words.
Six moral principles of the ACA (Autonomy, Nonmaleficence, Beneficence, Justice, Fidelity, Veracity)
(A.2.d. Inability to Give Consent-When counseling minors, incapacitated adults, or other persons unable to give voluntary consent, counselors seek the assent of clients to services and include them in decision making as appropriate. Counselors recognize the need to balance the ethical rights of clients to make choices, their capacity to give consent or assent to receive services, and parental or familial legal rights and responsibilities to protect these clients and make decisions on their behalf.)
(B.5.b. Responsibility to Parents and Legal Guardians–Counselors inform parents and legal guardians about the role of counselors and the confidential nature of the counseling relationship, consistent with current legal and custodial arrangements. Counselors are sensitive to the cultural diversity of families and respect the inherent rights and responsibilities of parents/guardians regarding the welfare of their children/charges according to law. Counselors work to establish, as appropriate, collaborative relationships with parents/guardians to best serve clients.)
