Bartering: Manicuring for Therapy
Watch the following Ethics in Action video vignette and answer the questions. (Please note that some of the questions may be different than in the Ethics in Action workbook). Responses should demonstrate critical thinking and insight and should be of sufficient length to address each question completely
#19 Bartering: Manicuring for Therapy The client (LeAnne) states that she can no longer afford to pay for therapy. However, she really does not like to think about terminating. The counselor (Natalie) takes the initiative of suggesting a bartering arrangement, indicating she would be open to trading manicures and haircuts for therapy services.
What are the prominent ethical issues for the counselor Natalie in this vignette and what is your impression of how she handled the situation? Explain.
If you were Natalie, how would you have handled this situation? How would you have responded if the client LeAnne proposed a bartering arrangement? Explain.
Would you ever consider bartering if a client was unable to pay for therapy? If so, what considerations would you examine in deciding whether or not to engage in bartering?
What other options besides bartering might exist in this case?
