Classmate Post: According to the American Counseling Association’s Code of Ethics, the definition of the idea of “informed consent” is: “a process of information sharing associated with possible actions clients may choose to take, aimed at assisting clients in acquiring a full appreciation and understanding of the facts and implications of a given action or actions” (ACA Code of Ethics). While it appears as though it’s a rather broad definition, the focal point of this idea is centered on the client being aware of and consenting to the counseling services that the counselor is providing them. It is a critical aspect of the therapeutic relationship and absolutely vital to ensuring that the client feels as though they have a say in the treatment that they are involved in. Upon typing in “informed consent form” into Google, the first result that came up originated from a Christian counseling organization called TrueNorth in Novi, MI. The consent form includes details on the counseling services that the client will be provided as well as information about confidentiality and how certain specific situations would be handled by the organization as a disclaimer. The form also details what to do if the client needs to cancel an appointment, how to pay for their services, and emergency accessibility of a counselor. At the bottom of the form are places for the client and counselor signatures. This is quite different than what is required by the state of MA. According to the regulations in MA consent forms must, at a minimum, include the clinician’s credentials, a confidentiality statement and its limits, information about the use of tests, billing procedures, an explanation and risk analysis of the services being provided, explanation of the use and risks of distance counseling, and a client bill of rights that details how the client has the right to terminate treatment at any time (262 CMR 8). This is far more in depth than the organization I discovered in MI was, and honestly I feel as though that’s far better. There was a lot of information missing from TrueNorth’s consent form that I naturally had questions about upon initially reading it. The state of MA’s regulations were exactly in line with what the ACA’s Code of Ethics states a counselor should provide its clients.

My professor post please reply to her response, I attached my submitted discussion informed consent if needed to reply to my professor post. Regards to incorporating prayer into session, how would you utilize the informed consent? As you discuss with your client, who do you believe should initiate and say the prayer? This week the focus has been on self-examination to avoid imposing a counselor’s beliefs. Is it possible to avoid imposing a counselor’s beliefs and values on to a client, if the counselor is saying the prayer? Discuss your reasons.
