Ethics: Working with Transition-Aged Youth with Disabilities

Clock Hours/Domains:
5.00 Ethics
This ethics course presents common ethical dilemmas associated with transition-aged youth with disabilities. Transition services support transition-aged youth with disabilities as they move toward adulthood and independence by completing secondary education and preparing for postsecondary opportunities. CRCs may find themselves working with transition-aged youth with disabilities within vocational agencies, private practices, school systems, and behavioral health organizations. Support for transition-aged youth often is provided in a collaborative manner from the referral (e.g., transition specialist, special education teacher, school counselor) to case closure (e.g., parents/guardian, employment specialist). Work with transition-aged youth can present challenges and ethical dilemmas created by various organizational cultures and climates. Ethical dilemmas also arise during collaboration with agencies, family members of clients, and other members of transition teams. CRCs should refer to the CRCC Code of Professional Ethics for Rehabilitation Counselors (Code) whenever such dilemmas occur. Use the Code when working with high-school students transitioning to college to address ethical dilemmas inherent in the transition process; better understand how to apply the information in the Code to your practice; and guide your decision-making.
