Ethics Consulting for Mental Health Professionals
I entered the business of helping people because I wanted others to live happy, fulfilled lives and to achieve their fullest potential. Therapy is a professional process for guiding and supporting such a journey of self-discovery and life fulfillment. Successful journeys are made possible by establishing and maintaining a trusting environment and trusting relationships. As professionals, therapists are fiduciaries of trust, and I am passionately committed to my responsibility for that trust. In fact, I am an ethics advocate, having served as the Ethics Chair for the Licensed Professional Counselor's Association of Georgia and now serving as the Chair of the Georgia Psychological Association's Ethics Committee.
I would like to share a few resources about Ethics and Ethics Codes with you whether you are an individual seeking therapy services or a professional provider of therapy services. I believe it is just as important for clients to understand professional ethics as it is for therapists to maintain them.
The most common professional codes of ethics are listed below, along with the ability to download the most recent PDF file version. These professional and organizational codes are updated from time to time by the various industry organizations. Please be sure to check the organization's website for any updates they may have made since our posting here. Links to the various websites are also provided for your convenience.
If you have encountered an ethics dilemma or just have a question about the application of ethics in a given situation, give me a call. I can help you with an Ethics consultation session. I offer 25 and 50 minute sessions. It is your choice to meet in person, speak on the telephone, or utilize a HIPAA compliant video conferencing platform.
If you are a member of the Georgia Psychological Association (GPA), contact Amy Dietrich at (404) 634-6272 to schedule a consultation with a member of the GPA Ethics Committee. Your consultation will be with a psychologist who has expertise in the subject matter related to your question. Your consultation could be with me or with another psychologist depending on the nature of your question.
Starting out with the right forms is a must for successful, thriving practices. My professional forms library has been used for over 20 years by hundreds of individual practices, group practices, and even hospitals for maintaining a legal and ethically sound business.
