Ethical Factors to Consider
Standard One (example)
Marriage and family therapists provide professional assistance to persons without discrimination on the basis of race, age, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, disability, gender, health status, religion, national origin, sexual orientation, gender identity or relationship status.
A Christian therapist whose personal beliefs do not support alternative lifestyles is assigned to work with a gay couple. One member of the couple is in male to female transition.
The therapist would seek supervision and consultation in regards to how to support the goals of their clients without imposition of their personal beliefs.
Discrimination: The therapist cannot refer out simply because they are uncomfortable or do not agree with a client’s sexual orientation, gender identity, or relationship status.
