There are numerous ethical decision-making models, or EDMs, utilized in the counseling profession. As a practicing counselor, you will be expected to incorporate the use of an EDM in your practice. Understanding how to integrate these EDMs to specific cases will differ on a day-to-day basis. Therefore, it is important to hone the skill of applying EDMs within your professional practice to ensure ethical, efficient, and effective counseling services. Sifting out the nuances between these different EDMs is helpful in the preparation for future practice.
