1) I have read the entire required .pdf text file for this course.

2) I have read my respective Professional Association’s Code of Ethics.

3) From a liability perspective, it is important to note that whether we are a dues paying member or not of our respective professional association, in civil court we will be held to our professional association’s ethical standards.

4) In order for us to be effective in helping clients resolve crisis situations, the first thing that we often need to do is provide basic education and teach specific skills.

5) During a time of crisis, anger can be an energizer and a motivator that helps a person get tasks done, even when those tasks are perhaps so overwhelming that they otherwise would not have the ability to do them.

6) Helping our clients to create realistic expectations and to dispute irrational beliefs is not important in crisis counseling because when the crisis is over, they will think clearly again.

7) Richard tells his clients that they are too THIN and need to become more FAT in their thinking processes.

8) A good therapist is always the on-call savior of all his or her clients.

9) All services available to the suicidal client at the community level are predicated upon the answers to our assessment of two things: lethality and immanency.

10) The person with a well-developed plan is more likely to attempt suicide than those who have no plan.

11) The acronym PLAID PALS is designed to help those who are assessing a suicidal client to identify issues related to potential risk.

12) When working with clients in crisis - and especially violent or suicidal clients - it is imperative to assess for substance use and abuse.

13) Many people experience difficult and uncomfortable events in life. Suffering from difficulties in life do not yield a diagnosis of post-traumatic stress disorder.

14) For the diagnosis of PTSD, the disturbance experience has to cause clinically significant distress to our client, and impair them in important social, occupational, or other areas of functioning.

15) The fourth tool from the ACA’s fact sheet is to praise the child and point out their responsible behaviors following a trauma, and to reassure children that their feelings, however difficult to experience or different from their normal “pre-crisis” feelings, are normal now, in response to an abnormal situation.

16) Ethics are the standards that govern the conduct of a person, especially a member of a profession.

17) Our professional association’s Code of Ethics can often provide us with the answers to the problem that we have identified.

18) Every step in the Ethical Decision-Making Model is predicated on these five moral principles: braveness, cleanness, courteousness, kindness and reverence.

19) Sometimes clients are in crisis through their own actions, but we have an obligation to provide just services to them, regardless of how we perceive their situations.

20) Cognitive-behavioral therapy is a standard of care that has been well documented in our profession, and is certainly appropriate with the suicidal client; Feng Shui is not.
