New BACP Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions

BACP Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions

Introduction

BACP are delighted to present the new Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions, produced following extensive member consultation. The new Ethical Framework takes counsellors and therapists to a new and exciting level in ethical thinking in our profession. The new Ethical Framework will be formally adopted and will replace the existing one on 1 July 2016. However, BACP will publish it now to allow time for members, organisations, training providers, stakeholders and clients alike to familiarise themselves with the changes and to begin to develop practice in accordance with the principles outlined.

Professor Tim Bond offers a Welcome to the Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions and explains the changes between the 2016 Framework and the previous Framework.
