School Guidance and Counselling

Hong Kong University Press

This chapter aims to enhance teachers’ knowledge of the codes of ethics in counselling, to heighten their awareness of the ethical issues and their competence in handling them, and to highlight the need for recognizing the professionalism of counselling work. The chapter begins with an exposition of the necessity for teachers to study counselling ethics, followed by a discussion of the importance and limits of the ethical codes, covering also the significant ethical issues relevant to school counselling. In the discussions a case study format is adopted. By referring to several typical school counselling cases, the complicated and contradictory nature of ethical issues is illustrated. On the basis of the ethical codes laid down by Western and local professional counselling organizations, methods appropriate to the Hong Kong school culture and social environment are proposed.
