Abstract

In general, those who choose to pursue careers in the helping professions are motivated to act morally and ethically (of course, this ideal is sometimes not the case). But a desire to do good is not sufficient to ensure good practice. The majority of practitioners who have acted unethically have not done so through explicit malicious intent, but rather through passivity, inattention, ignorance, or limited competence to deal with the challenges of applied practice.
