The main purpose of the course will be to foster a deepening sense of the essential nature of ethical reflection and accountability to clients, and the counselling profession in general. Evaluation: class participation, weekly assignments/quizzes, major paper. This course has been pre-approved by the Canadian Association for Spiritual Care (CASC) as fulfilling the ethics requirement for their certification programs in Supervised Pastoral Education Certification (CPE & PCE).
