2. When you consider the many reasons for codes of ethics, which do you consider the most important? Justify your answer by ranking the reasons for codes of ethics according to their relative importance.
3. Which of the many limitations in a code of ethics do you consider to be most significant? Justify your answer.
4. Find out some common forms of dual relationships. Discuss at least four of them and the potential harm associated with each.
5. Which of the eight sections of the AAMFT Code of Ethics do you think is most difficult for family therapists to deal with? Which do you think is easiest? Give reasons for your opinions and, if you have time, investigate the correctness of your answer with the AAMFT
6. Compare and contrast the ethical implications of violating client welfare as opposed to breaking confidentiality. Where do these two ethical principals overlap and where do they differ?
7. How are the law and ethics similar? How do they differ? Give examples in each case.
8. Explain the differences between civil and criminal liabilities. What are some common examples of family therapists and others becoming liable for their actions as professional helpers?
9. What do you see as the advantages and disadvantages of having privileged communication in a therapeutic situation such as family therapy?
10. Pretend you are a family therapist. Draw a map of your office and describe how you would ensure the safety of its records.
11. Describe what you think it would be like to function in court as a family therapist. Of the possible roles therapists can fill in court, which one do you find most appealing? Why?
12. Do you think the concept of family therapy as a minority culture is a helpful one in contrasting it to the majority culture of the law? What other comparisons might be helpful in distinguishing between these two ways of working with families?
