1. Review the professional disclosure statement on pages 70–73 of your text, Orientation to the Counseling Profession, which you originally read in your Unit 1 studies. Additionally, search the internet for other professional disclosure statements. These documents may also be called “Treatment Contracts,” “Counselor-Client Contracts,” and on occasion may be clustered in with a provider’s office policies and paperwork and have no name. After reviewing several of these documents, create your own. It will be assumed that some of your information will be fictitious but include general headings such as: experience, nature of counseling, referrals, cost and fees, treatment modality, records and confidentiality, and emergency protocols.
Post a copy of your contract in the discussion area.
