Counselling Ethics and the New Worldview


Instructor: Duanita G. Eleniak, MSW RCSW ATR BCATR RCAT PhD

Ideas are presented in this online course to provoke a conversation about the implications for counselling ethics and practices of the current paradigm shift in consciousness. Emphasis is placed on it being the ethical responsibility of all helping professionals to learn about the new developments in the areas of science and to ponder the implications for the field of counselling. The need for a new psycho-spiritual paradigm in the field of psychology is presented along with the need to address these issues in our codes of ethics so that counsellors have some guidance in this pioneering territory.
