This course provides a basis for integrating knowledge and developing practical skills for addressing ethical issues that arise in counselling and applied psychology. This course will focus on developing a critical analysis of personal and collective worldviews in counselling processes. Learners will develop core knowledge and build practical skills in relational ethics and social justice values while examining the role of regulatory and collegial professional associations in Canada.
