This paper discusses three separate counseling case studies and examines ethical dilemmas, real or imagined, within the context of situational circumstances in which the typical therapist might find him or herself during the course of ongoing counseling with clients. The paper relates that the outcome is that only one case, the one related to propinquity, offers any concrete professional ethics related dilemma while the other two cases can be effectively dealt with through appropriate counseling techniques.

From the Paper:

"Kate's experience and recounting of her divorce proceedings with her therapist reveal, to one degree or another, a certain degree of uncertainty avoidance on her part which implies that she is, at least in part, responsible for her husband's confusion regarding the divorce. Since Kate announced that she wanted a divorce, retained a law firm but continued to live with her husband and, essentially, to act in the same manner as before, it is reasonable to expect that her husband might be confused regarding the divorce itself."
