June 22nd the American Counseling Association of Georgia will host an event at Richmont’s Atlanta campus titled: “Raising the Bar: Critical Concepts in the ACA Code of Ethics.”
Knowing the ACA Code of Ethics inside and out is more important than ever. Recent events in Tennessee have shown that we must all be prepared to define, protect, and defend it at a moment’s notice. Moving forward as one strong, unified community is by far the best way to preserve the integrity of the counseling profession. We must speak with one clear voice.
June 22, 2018
9:00 am – 2:30 pm
Richmont Graduate University, Atlanta Campus
Discussion points will include:
- Securing a strong foundation of general knowledge around content areas in the ACA Code of Ethics
- Understanding critical ethical updates in such areas as professional values; social media; the imposition of counselor personal values; defining the moment ethical responsibilities begin; and fee splitting
- Protecting against malpractice lawsuits by keeping up with new ethical imperatives
David M. Kaplan, Ph.D., NCC
ACA Cheif Professional Officer
Regarding this event, Richmont Faculty and ACA of Georgia Executive Board Member, Keith Myers, Ph.D. commented:
“We are honored to have David Kaplan join us at Richmont Graduate University as we go for a deep dive into the ethical issues that are specific to our profession. Being ethical is about doing what is best for our clients and communities, and I’m glad that he will be here to facilitate that discussion.”
Richmont is honored to host this event and proud to support the great work of the ACA of Georgia. Concerning the ACA of Georgia Dr. Myers added:
“Being a member of the ACA of Georgia Executive Board and this work of revitalizing the state branch has been a great privilege of mine during the past couple of years. We look forward to offering education and networking events in the coming months and years to all counselors of various disciplines within our profession. Those events will be free to those who reside and practice in our great state and are already an ACA member.”
