In this textbook, prominent counselor educators provide guidance on key aspects of counselor education through case incidents in which an educator, student, supervisor, supervisee, researcher, or leader in the field is facing an ethical, moral, legal, or professional dilemma. Forty diverse case scenarios spanning four CACREP Standard domains for doctoral programs focus on real-world application of theories, concepts, and techniques. The incidents provide multiple perspectives on current issues faced in practice and promote learning opportunities for growth and development through critical thinking, discussion, and reflection. Each incident includes an evaluation of professional issues, a review of applicable ethical codes, a discussion of diversity and inclusion considerations, and an analysis of action steps and outcomes.
