This paper describes the role and ethics of a mental health therapist and the importance of putting the needs of the clients first and allowing them to maintain dignity at all times.

From the Paper:

"Proceeding further, an ethical counselor will recognize that he or she is in a position of power relative to his or her clients. As a result, fostering dependency or using someone's vulnerability to exploit him or her in some way - sexual and/or financial exploitation are the two things that come to mind immediately - is repellant and not at all what counseling should be about. To put it another way, an ethical counselor will put the needs of his or her clients first and will not use a respected professional position for self-aggrandizement that comes at the expense of others."
