President's Welcome
Stacy As mentioned at the Fall Conference, ASCA is currently in the process of reviewing their current Ethical Standards (which were last revised in 2010). There our concerns that many of the issues we face as counselors every day (use of data, social media, technology, special populations such as homeless youth, undocumented students and LGBQT) are all topics that are not adequately addressed in the current version.

You can download the current Ethical Standards here, as well as a separate page of notes for areas that need to be expanded on or adjusted.

In addition you can also download a list of position statements (also available on the ASCA website) based on many of the topics addressed (or needing to be addressed) in the Ethical Standards.

If you have feelings about any of the attached please feel free to send me your thoughts so that I can include your ideas in the information RISCA will forward.

I am more than happy to meet with individuals (or a small group) of people if you'd prefer to discuss your concerns in that forum. I would like to have all input by January 5th so I cam compile feedback by the January 15th deadline.

Thanks in advance for your ideas.

Stacy Haines-Mayne
RISCA President
