You will be able to provide short-term counselling. You receive your caseload and are told you are allowed 60 minutes for an initial assessment with your newly assigned clients.
How will you ensure that you follow ethical considerations within the assessment process? What steps will you take?
What should clients be notified of regarding possible legal situations?
What are two examples of culturally informed practices that you may use within the assessment process?
