TLPCA 2021 Counseling and Therapy Summit

June 10 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Ethics, Multiculturalism, & Social Justice
In the last 10 years we have seen an explosion in the awareness of social justice issues within the field of mental health. Access to services, multicultural issues, values debates, denial of services, and socio-economic issues have all been raised in ethical and legal debates, legislation, and standards of practice. Using the Multicultural and Social Justice Counseling Competencies (MSJCC) as a foundation, we will explore how the 2014 ACA Code of Ethics & the 2020 AMHCA Code of Ethics addresses social justice, advocacy, and standards of practice.

Presenter: Dr. Perry C. Francis is a member of the faculty at Eastern Michigan University in the Department of Leadership & Counseling where he serves as a professor of counseling and the coordinator of the counseling training clinic for the College of Education Clinical Suite where he maintains a private practice. Dr. Perry served as the Chair of the Ethics Revision Task Force for the American Counseling Association as well as chairing the sub-committee on Scope of Practice issues for 20/20 Commission on the Future of Counseling. He has presented on ethics in supervision, ethical issues facing counselors, and suicide prevention at conferences in the United States, Canada, and Europe. He has also written numerous journal articles and book chapters including a chapter on ethics in forthcoming book Introduction to Counseling: A Multicultural and Social Justice Perspective to be published in December of 2020.
