Crisis counseling service delivery, because of its demanding nature and unique challenges, is different from any other kind of counseling. In fact, these settings may require more intimate knowledge of professional standards and relevant laws because extreme situations, such as those following a disaster or during a crisis, can produce more ethical uncertainties and require more diligent observance of guidelines than traditional counseling settings. This assignment will help counselors think through these unique circumstances and the challenges counselors working in these settings may face. Tasks: In a 3- to 4-page paper, respond to the following: Identify three major ethical issues relevant to working with individuals in a crisis or when responding to a major disaster. Explain how you would navigate these issues to ensure ethical practice.
