Life Strategies is excited to announce our Ethics Primer and Ethics Refresher courses. Developed in conjunction with the Canadian Counselling & Psychotherapy Association (CCPA), this an ideal professional development opportunity for new counsellors and psychotherapists seeking to hone their skills and experienced counsellors and psychotherapists looking to brush up. 

Ethics Primer (Self-Paced, 10 hours)

This course will review CCPA’s code of ethics and standards of practice, providing an essential foundation for ethical practice. Students will review and apply the CCPA ethical decision-making model to case vignettes that include a variety of ethical dilemmas and complex counselling challenges involving “shades of grey.” For counsellors who haven’t previously completed an ethics course recognized by CCPA, this self-directed, online course serves as a foundation for the Ethics Refresher course, which is more in-depth and instructor-led.

Ethics Refresher (3-Week Facilitated, 20 hours)

Building from Ethics Primer or previous training in counselling/psychotherapy ethics, this follow-up, facilitated online course will dig deeper, exploring best practices for ethical counselling according to CCPA’s code of ethics and standards of practice. Students will discuss ethical “grey areas” in current counselling practice; course activities will require personal reflection about values, culture, context, and decision-making processes as ethical knowledge is translated to practice through working with real and hypothetical scenarios.

Some words from our students:

Dear Roberta, I am so grateful for this course! It is not just about the content, which I appreciate very much. It is also about the quality of interaction as well. I confess I was very nervous because I thought there would be a lot of details to memorize, law language, jargon, etc. – pure fantasies! Now I can say that I feel quite comfortable with our code and how it works. I think it is very important that all counsellors take this course or get an update once in a while, but this course is especially relevant to those like me, who have studied and have experience outside Canada. We start to better understand how the society and culture, and the counselling culture works here. I feel deeply grateful for your feedbacks and suggestions. Thank you!
