General Purpose and Scope


The Board adopts the 2014 American Counseling Association (ACA) Code of Ethics as the code of professional conduct.


The ACA code constitutes the standards against which the required professional conduct of professional counselors and marriage and family therapists is measured. It has as its goal the welfare and protection of the individuals and groups with whom counselors and therapists work. This Code applies to the conduct of all licensees, registered interns, persons granted temporary practice authorization, and applicants, including the applicant’s conduct during the period of education, training, and employment which is required for licensure. Violation of the provisions of this Code of Ethics will be considered unprofessional or unethical conduct and is sufficient reason for disciplinary action, including, but not limited to, denial of licensure or authorization.
