Counselors: Negotiating the Legal and Ethical Complications of Working with Minors in Schools
March 31, 2014
NYC Special Education Collaborative
111 Broadway, Suite 604, New York, NY 10006
Participants will analyze ethical and legal issues through the application of ASCA ethical codes, case and statutory law, school board rules, court cases, and community standards. Participants will be given the opportunity to increase their understanding of the complexities of respecting a minor’s right to confidentiality amid the competing interest of parents rights to be the guiding voice in their children lives. Negligence cases will guide the discussion and offer best practice principles.
