Chapter 8 of your Ethical, Legal, and Professional Issues in Counseling text describes dual relationships as happening along a continuum from very harmful to beneficial to the client.
Provide a brief case vignette from your area of specialization that describes a dual relationship. The relationship could be either harmful or beneficial. Include the age of the student or client and the setting in which you are working. Describe the steps you will take to ensure that the relationships you develop with your students or clients and the decisions you make about boundaries in these relationships will be ethical, legal, and beneficial. Support your ideas with reference to the professional literature and the 2014 ACA Code of Ethics and/or the 2010 ASCA Ethical Standards for School Counselors.
