Chapter 3 discusses the ethical principles and issues involved in the professional practice of counseling psychology. It is important to note that the specialty adheres to the principles and ethical code of conduct of the American Psychological Association, which apply to all aspects of professional practice in professional psychology, and that, thus, there are no specialty-specific principles or a code of ethical conduct specific to counseling psychology. It also presents the most salient and frequently emerging standards of practice as well as the management of risk in counseling psychology practice, along with sample foundational and functional competencies in the knowledge and application of ethics in psychology with some examples of how these principles are used in the profession.
