Ethics in Substance Use Counseling
NCASPPB 23-026-S 4 hours SS (ETHICS)
NBCC 4 hours
Presented by Joseph Jordan, PhD, LCAS, CCS
Substance Use Disorder counseling is by its very nature filled with difficulties of an ethical nature. The origins of this sub-specialty in the profession of counseling are unique in that a significant number of the providers are also in recovery themselves. This is by no means the only profession with such a dynamic, as the sports coaching world is full of former participants now turned coaches or advisors. With counseling, however, the vulnerability of emotional bonding and connecting can lead to a multitude of ethical challenges. In addition, substance use disorder counseling carries some unique difficulties and requires a well-formed and resilient personal ethical code. This presentation will examine how ethical codes are conceived and conceptualized, with the underpinnings and foundations of ethical codes of conduct.
