Course Description: Although this course will review the elements of the NACP code of ethics, which was developed by the National Advocate Credentialing Program, and is widely used around the world, this course will invite participants to consider how their own personal and cultural values may enhance the model established by NACP. Participants will explore themes like self-disclosure, humor, and professional boundaries as they navigate difficult case scenarios. By the end of the course, advocates will develop their own unique personal code of ethics, which they can bring to their work.

Course Objectives:
• Review NACP Code of Ethics
• Apply the NACP Code of Ethics to a specific case scenario
• Determine one’s own core values
• Merge one’s own core values and the NACP Code of Ethics into a cohesive code of ethics
