  Broward Family Therapist Jobs: Ethics to Consider
Those with, or looking for, Broward family therapist jobs should become familiar with the commonly-accepted code of ethics for the profession.

The American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy serves as the professional association for marriage and family therapists throughout the nation. The association currently represents more than 50,000 professionals across America - including many with Fort Lauderdale jobs (Click here) - Canada, and elsewhere.

In order to help marriage and family therapists perform better in their jobs and remain accountable to the public, themselves, and their profession, the AAMFT Board of Directors developed a Code of Ethics to set the standard for marriage and family therapy.

"Both law and ethics govern the practice of marriage and family therapy," the AAMFT notes. "When making decisions regarding professional behavior, marriage and family therapists must consider the AAMFT Code of Ethics and applicable laws and regulations. If the AAMFT Code of Ethics prescribes a standard higher than that required by law, marriage and family therapists must meet the higher standard of the AAMFT Code of Ethics."

The eight principles of ethics include:
  1. Responsibility to clients - Marriage and family therapists advance the welfare of families and individuals. They respect the rights of those persons seeking their assistance, and make reasonable efforts to ensure that their services are used appropriately.
  2. Confidentiality - Marriage and family therapists have unique confidentiality concerns because the client in a therapeutic relationship may be more than one person. Therapists respect and guard the confidences of each individual client.
  3. Professional competence and integrity - Marriage and family therapists maintain high standards of professional competence and integrity.
  4. Responsibility to students and supervisees - Marriage and family therapists do not exploit the trust and dependency of students and supervisees.
  5. Responsibility to research participants - Investigators respect the dignity and protect the welfare of research participants, and are aware of applicable laws and regulations and professional standards governing the conduct of research.
  6. Responsibility to the profession - Marriage and family therapists respect the rights and responsibilities of professional colleagues and participate in activities that advance the goals of the profession.
  7. Financial arrangements - Marriage and family therapists make financial arrangements with clients, third-party payers, and supervisees that are reasonably understandable and conform to accepted professional practices.
  8. Advertising - Marriage and family therapists engage in appropriate informational activities, including those that enable the public, referral sources, or others to choose professional services on an informed basis.
