Perhaps Maxine’s work with Tanya and her renewed commitment to couples therapy will enable Tanya to reveal this secret to Liz. Ultimately, disclosure is the client’s choice and responsibility. We are inclined to discuss the pros and cons of sharing or not sharing the secret with the client holding the secret. This also involves a discussion of how the secret may be affecting the problem the couple brought to therapy and the therapy outcome itself. It is our responsibility as therapists to justify our clinical approach to situations such as this.
A further element is the managerial or normative aspect of supervision and this could explained to some extent as maintaining standards.An awareness of the need to keep up with CPD, personal blind spots and prejudices that affect the the way how both trainee and counselor look at themselves which in turn influence how they see others and the way how they work, so the requirement to contiunaly learn about oneself increases knowledge and understanding which is vitaly important for personal development and growth that will enevitbly enhance thier work with clients.

The Hyacinth Berry case study will be used throughout to identify and discuss the interconnections of values, ethics and legislation. The General Social Care (GSCC) and BASW offer the social work profession its value base. The message from reading their requirements is that values are a fundamental part of a competent social worker.

Complexities of the social work task relate partly to the worker having to negotiate the tension between these values and the dilemmas that decision making brings.

Now it is time to discuss the purpose for AICPA’s code, why it is considered the foundation of ethical reasoning, and its most important purposes. The purpose of the AICPA Code of Professional Conduct is to, “represent the expectations for CPAs on the part of the public in performance of professional services,” (Mintz, S. & Morris, R. 2011. p. 14). Currently the majority of CPAs belong to the AICPA; so the fact that the code of professional conduct has been established and accepted by the members themselves, it is considered as the foundation of ethical reasoning in accounting. Principles of the Code reflect the member’s recognition and understanding of its responsibilities to the public, clients and other CPAs. They are used to keep members focused on
Introduction All reputable therapists will offer an initial consultation. This gives the therapist the opportunity to get to know the client and build up a rapport with them. It is the time when the therapist can gain the information needed to successfully treat the client, both current issues and circumstances and past issues if necessary.

The client of human services can be defined by the nature of the problems that exist in their individual, family, or group situation. Those individuals and their problems are the reason human services exist from the start. Problems are a part of everyday life, and they can come and go and be major or minor.
