1) I have read all of the required reading for this course, including my respective professional association's Code of Ethics.

2) In Texas and a couple of other states, it's a felony to have sex with a client, or with anyone who ever was client - ever.

3) The incredible power that the therapist has in a client's life affords the therapist an opportunity to exploit the client in not only sexual ways, but many others as well.

4) The professional associations and the law in all 50 states assume that even a consensual sexual relationship between therapist and client is unacceptable.

5) Therapists who have engaged in sexual contact with clients are very dissimilar to sex offenders in their logic.

6) State law supercedes professional association guidelines.

7) Sexual intimacy with clients is unethical, according to the NBCC.

8) The NAADAC code of ethics says "member(s) shall not accept as clients anyone with whom they have engaged in sexual behavior."

9) The NASW code of Ethics states, "Social workers should not engage in sexual activities or sexual contact with clients' relatives or other individuals with whom clients maintain a close personal relationship..."

10) According to the NASW, "Social workers should not provide clinical services to individuals with whom they have had a prior sexual relationship."

11) Criminal laws and professional / ethical conduct guidelines are two different things, and they may work together or separately, depending on the issue, and on the state.

12) It's been suggested that when a sexual relationship with a client begins, the helping process ends.

13) In our litigious society, clients who are vengeful or simply deceitful may in fact allege that sexual misconduct has occurred in the therapy setting.

14) Sexual harassment is defined as: Any unsolicited and unwanted sexual advance or any other conduct of a sexual nature whereby submission to these actions is made explicitly or empirically as a term or condition of an individual's appraisal, performance or participation in the therapeutic process.

15) State Law in most states requires that licensed professionals must report to the state Board any conduct of other licensed professionals which violates ethical standards.
