Ethical, Legal and Professional Issues in Community Counseling

In order to work effectively in community settings, counselors must be aware of continuous changes in the profession. Of particular importance are ethical and legal issues that affect counseling, along with professional considerations such as community counselor identity, relationships with other mental health professionals, credentialing of mental health professionals, and managed care and third-party reimbursement. This course provides an opportunity for in-depth study of these areas.
