Legal Literacy and Ethical Practice in the Complex World of School Counseling

Carolyn Stone

Saturday, March 7, 2019 | 9:30 a.m. 

 

SPEAKER BIO: Carolyn Stone, Ed.D., is a Professor of Counselor Education at the University of North Florida (UNF). Dr. Stone is a Past President of the American School Counselor Association (ASCA). Prior to coming to UNF, Dr. Stone spent 22 years with Jacksonville, Florida’s Public Schools as an elementary and high school counselor, middle school teacher and Supervisor of Guidance Services. She supervised 225 school counselors. Dr. Stone currently serves as the Ethics Chair for ASCA and has done so for 15 years.

ABOUT THIS SESSION: Join Carolyn as she presents Legal Literacy and Ethical Practice in the Complex World of School Counseling. School counselors must negotiate the competing interests of the overregulated school environment, student’s need for confidentiality and the legal rights of parents to be the guiding voice in their children lives. Updates on these competing interests will be discussed through recent court developments. Legal rulings will be highlighted in areas such as sexually active students, bullying, academic advising, child abuse, educational records, and sexual harassment, first amendment rights, and transgender youth. The goal is to facilitate participants’ legal literacy and provide guiding principles to support best ethical practice.
