Discuss and explore the implications of the BACP Code of Ethics and Practice for Counsellors with regard to confidentiality and contracting in a specific setting.
In the setting of a private counselling practice, where internet communication technologies are utilised; I will discuss and explore the implications of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy's Code of Ethics and Practice for Counsellors with regard to confidentiality and contracting.
For clarification, the terms therapist, practitioner and counsellor are used interchangeably. In March 2001, the British Association for Counselling announced its intentions to become known as the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy; therefore, with reference to the use of the terms 'BAC' and 'BACP', they are the same professional body / organisation.
The current version of the BAC Code of Ethics and Practice for Counsellors published in May 1996 is a revision of the 1992(1993) code. The code states, that members of BAC are, ''required to abide by the current codes appropriate to them.'' (BACP 1996), therefore, it is of utmost importance, that members of the organisation or those intending to abide by such codes understand the implications of doing so. The main aim of the code is defined within the actual code, it is, ''to establish and maintain standards for counsellors who are members of the BAC'', and, ''to inform and protect people who seek or use their services.''(BACP 1996)Page 1 | Page 10 | Page 11 | Page 12 | Page 13 | Page 2 | Page 2 | Page 3 | Page 3 | Page 4 | Page 4 | Page 5 | Page 5 | Page 6 | Page 6 | Page 7 | Page 7 | Page 8 | Page 8 | Page 9 | Page 9 |
