The paper provides an overview and discussion of the regulatory requirements for a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) and Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor (LCPC) in the state of Illinois. The paper discusses the counseling issues of discrimination, confidentiality, personal relationships between client and counselor, and treatment outside the scope of specialization. The paper concludes that the relationship between counselor and client is uniquely intimate, and it is common sense to discuss ethical rules in detail at the beginning of therapy, so that clients feel safe and are well-informed about their rights.
From the Paper:"A professional counselor can lose his or her license for ethical reasons. The State of Illinois outlines what constitutes unethical behavior in Title 68: Section 1375.225 Unprofessional Conduct (Administrative Code). The first reason is "Practicing, condoning, facilitating, or collaborating with any form of discrimination." The counselor is expected not only to refrain from discriminating against clients, but also to take positive action against any discrimination that might occur in the surroundings, "to prevent and eliminate it." Any action that causes clients to lose their civil or legal rights is also grounds for loss of license."
