At her second appointment the little girl complies with Sandra’s “spur of the moment” request to draw a picture, as directed by the House-Tree-Person Test. This is the projective test that Sandra learned about in her recent training. Upon looking carefully at the drawing following the child’s session, Sandra becomes concerned based on some elements of the drawing, that the child is being abused in some manner when she is at her mother’s home. Sandra contacts the child’s attorney and an informal investigation is started. The child is temporarily removed from her mother’s home and placed with her father full time in order to protect the child until the investigation is completed.
Two weeks later the allegation of abuse was found to be unsubstantiated and the child was returned to her mother’s home to resume her prior time sharing schedule. Six weeks later the child’s mother filed a formal complaint against Sandra citing harm that was done to her, her daughter, and to their relationship as a result of the “bogus” accusation made by Sandra, the child’s counselor.
Focusing on the use of the projective test by Sandra, what “evidence” can you find in the ACA 2014 Code of Ethics and in your readings, in defense of the counselor? Next, what evidence can you find that could be incriminating for the counselor? Be sure to be very specific and cite particular sections of the Code of Ethics or passages from your readings to illustrate your points either “for” or “against” the counselor. An in-depth and thoughtful discussion, that clearly demonstrates your understanding of some of the complexities of this situation will earn the most points.
