Addressing Ethical Dilemmas in Doctoral - Level Counselor Education Supervision Programs
Clayton V. Martin, Brian Kooyman, Keosha Branch, and Rebecca L. Sheffield
This paper examines the nature of ethics and the processes involved in ethical decision making. The ethical decision-making model created by Corey, Corey, and Callanan is
applied to multiple ethical dilemmas present in a fictional case example. Principles of the ethical-decision making model are applied to matters of counselor aggression, the breach of confidential information, counselor role transitions, mishandling of supervisee training by counseling faculty, and provision of counseling by a counselor educator to a student.
A brief summary recounts the complexity and reasoning involved in deconstructing the case example’s ethical dilemmas.
