Intodilemmas
John has been attending counselling sessions for several months seeking help with the difficulties he is finding in dealing with his relationship break-up. He and his partner were together for ten years and have two children, a boy aged 9 and a girl aged 7. John has access to them every other weekend and for part of each school holiday. This arrangement has been operating reasonably well for the past two years.
 
In John’s sessions with you, you become increasingly aware of building frustrations and stress regarding visitation and access to his children. His heightened display of frustration has raised a number of concerns for you about the stability of his mood and thought processes.
 
Aware of recent reports about parents taking the lives of their children and themselves in similar circumstances, you begin to become apprehensive about the children’s welfare and safety.
 
As a counsellor, what would you do in this situation?

The Ethical Decision Making Process
 
Often a dilemma can be easily solved through applying basic problem solving concepts and/or by looking at relevant ethical codes. There are times when neither process will be sufficient to address the scope of a dilemma. When this arises, an ethical dilemma or problem may be approached from a number of frameworks. 
 
Two approaches are considered in this article:
 
1.    Ethical Principles
2.    Ethical Decision Making Framework
 
In all aspects of ethical problem solving, it is best to take a clear systematic approach avoiding ambiguity. 
 
Ethical Principles
 
Ethical principles are one framework that can be used to work through an ethical dilemma. All principles are considered equal with generally, no one holding greater weight or importance than another. Application of the ethical principles may provide sufficient scope and information to either clarify the dimensions of the problem or even, formulate an acceptable action to address an ethical dilemma. 
 
There are five (5) ethical principles considered relevant to counselling:
 
1.    Respect for Autonomy
2.    Non-maleficence
3.    Beneficence
4.    Justice
5.    Fidelity
 
Respect for Autonomy
 
The freedom of clients to choose their own direction – respecting that the client has the ability to make choices free from the constraints of others (Welfel, 1998; Corey, Corey and Callanan, 2007). The role of the counsellor is to acknowledge client autonomy and to respect this right.
 
An autonomous action is one that cannot interfere with the autonomy of another. An individual is to be aware of the choice taken and the effect/consequences it has on others (Welfel, 1998). 
 
Limitations to client autonomy apply to those clients who are currently unable to understand the repercussions of their action – for example children and mental health patients (Welfel, 1998). 
 
Non-maleficence
 
This term means to do no harm. It is a concept derived from the medical profession. Autonomy relates to the individual client, non-maleficence refers to the abilities of the counsellor. Counsellors have a responsibility to avoid utilising interventions that could or have the potential to harm clients (Welfel, 1998; Corey et al., 2007).
 
In practice counsellors are expected to undertake thorough evaluation of the client's concerns and apply appropriately determined and explained interventions.
 
Beneficence
 
Considered the responsibility to do good and to contribute to the welfare of the client (Forester-Miller and Davis 1996). The counsellor is expected to do the best for the client and if unable to assist, to offer alternatives as appropriate.
 
Welfel (1998, p36) also asserts that beneficence ‘requires that counselors engage in professional activities that provide general benefit to the public.'
 
Justice
 
Justice means to act in a fair or just manner. It is expected that counsellors will act in a non-discriminatory manner to individuals or groups. Forester-Miller and Davis (1996) suggest that although justice instructs counsellors to act fairly it does not mean treating all individuals the same rather it relates to equity. It is the counsellor's ability to acknowledge inequity and apply intervention to suit. 
 
Fidelity
 
This principle deals with the trust relationship between the counsellor and their client. The interests of the client are placed before those of the counsellor even if such loyalty (towards the client) is inconvenient or uncomfortable for the counsellor (Welfel, 1998).
 
A client needs to be able to trust that the words and actions of the counsellor are truthful and reliable. The counsellor however, does not need to share every fleeting thought or reaction.
 
In summary
 
  • Application of ethical principles may provide a counsellor with solution to an ethical dilemma.
  • Counsellors acknowledge client autonomy and respect this right unless it interferes with the autonomy of others.
  • Non-maleficence is the principle of 'do no harm' in which counsellors do not undertake and actively avoid activities that could be detrimental to clients.
  • Beneficence involves doing good both within the counselling relationship and as a member of the greater community.
  • Justice entitles client to treatment based on fairness and equity. The counsellor acting a manner that is non-discriminatory.
  • Fidelity is based on trust within the client-counsellor relationship.

Article: Defining Bullying
Published: Edition 65
 
According to Rigby (2006), bullying is the intentional act of causing harm and unhappiness to others through harassment, physical assault, cyber assault, or other more subtle methods of coercion such as manipulation. Further, the harassment can be verbal, physical and/or emotional.
 
Bullying is a general term applied to a pattern of behaviour whereby one person (the bully) who has uncontrolled anger, resentment and/or aggression (and lacks interpersonal/social skills) chooses to displace their aggression, social dominance and power onto another (the victim). Bullies use tactics, such as criticism, manipulation, ridicule, exclusion, isolation and teasing to ridicule or incite the victim (Masheder, 1998).

How Healthy Intimacy is Developed
 
Intimacy is one of the main ingredients of a successful, ‘ideal’ relationship along with passion and commitment (Hanna, 1991). Intimacy is a journey – it is not a tangible thing. It takes place over time, is ever-changing and is not stagnant. In fact, any kind of stagnation in a relationship may damage intimacy.
 
It is important in the counselling process to have an understanding of how intimacy develops in a relationship as well as some of the factors that could potentially be harmful to the development of it. The following factors will be discussed in relation to the development of intimacy including:
 
  • Conditions that make it more likely to develop
  • Gender differences
  • Individual differences
Conditions for the development of intimacy
 
There are a number of conditions that are more beneficial to the healthy development of intimacy in a relationship. Intimacy requires time to develop as well as dedication and is a challenging task to not only develop intimacy but to maintain it. Another condition is trust; trust is required to allow each person in the relationship to feel comfortable to self-disclose and be vulnerable with each other (Brown & Brown, 1995).
 
Trust is defined as the “reliability, fairness, and faith” one has in his or her partner and without a certain level of trust the likelihood of intimate interactions is lessened (Prager, 1995).
 
Affection is another condition that goes hand in hand with intimacy as there should be a certain amount of positive feelings between the couple for the want or need of intimacy to be present (Prager, 1995). Cohesiveness is another factor that is generally required for intimacy in a relationship.
 
Cohesiveness refers to the sharing of time and activities in a relationship and for intimacy to occur spending time together is required (Prager). Finally, commitment between the couple is also a condition in which intimacy is more likely to occur (“Intimacy”, 1993).
 
Gender differences
 
Intimacy is generally viewed differently by males and females in relationships and this may impact on the development of it in a relationship due to the differing expectations (Brown & Brown, 1995; Prager, 1995). Women are more likely to view emotional intimacy in a relationship as more important whereas men tend to favour sexual intimacy and experiential intimacy.
 
Women have a heightened propensity to initiate verbal conversations about their feelings than men as well as being more likely to express when their intimacy needs are not being met. Men are more likely to look at how to resolve a problem rather than talk through their feelings about it (Brown & Brown).
 
Some research has also suggested that men may be less intimate in their relationships due to defining themselves in terms of autonomy and not requiring the level of emotional intimacy that women do (Heller & Wood, 1998). This may be due to the way in which the genders are socialised from a young age.
 
For example, in the past, men have been taught to be assertive, autonomous, self-confident and to not express intimate feelings. Women on the other hand are taught to maintain the emotional aspects of family life thus enhancing their expression of intimacy (Mackey, Diemer, & O’Brien, 2000).
 
Individual differences
 
Individual differences in the relationship may also impact on the development of intimacy. Individual differences include culture, economic and social status, childhood development, and personality factors.
 
Although the research on intimacy and cultural differences is limited, there is a substantial amount of information on cultural differences that impacts on the functioning of the relationship which could potentially impact on intimacy. The major theme in the literature is that cultural variations lead to differences in expectations and attitudes about relationships (Brown & Brown, 2002).
 
For example, some cultures may be more likely to discuss and analyse a problem in the relationship whereas others may not be as willing to do this. Due to this type of influence being ingrained from a young age, issues in intimacy may arise if one partner is willing to open up and the other is not.
 
There may also be differences in gender roles (as previously discussed under gender differences) as well as the relationship with other family members. For example, some cultures are heavily involved in each other’s lives and as such may “intervene” in a couple’s relationship rather than allowing them to talk to each other about what is happening and resolve the problem on their own (Brown & Brown).
 
Economic and social status may also have an impact on intimacy in a relationship. One reason for this is when a couple decide to share finances, the couple may have differences in opinion in how they want to spend money. For example, one person in the couple may want to spend the money whereas the other may want to save (Hanna, 1991).
 
Childhood Development has also been linked to the development of intimacy in relationships. As individuals develop in childhood, they experience intimate relationships with the people around them. This develops ways of behaving in interactions and relationships and may be transferred to intimate relationships later on in life (Prager, 1995).
 
Personality has also been linked to the level of intimacy developed in a relationship. People that are shy, anxious in social situations, have poor social skills and/or have difficulty trusting people have more trouble forming intimate relationships. Other traits affect the deepening of relationships such as those that use self-monitoring behaviour. There are personality traits that impact the likelihood of an ongoing intimate relationship.
 
Traits such as self-consciousness increase the level of intimate disclosures therefore increase the ongoing nature of the intimate relationship. Other traits include perspective-taking capacity (i.e. how well one accepts another’s perspective), neuroticism, openness to experience, empathy, intimacy motivation, intimacy capacity, and self-esteem also impact on intimacy in the relationship (Prager, 1995).
 
Another factor relevant to each person is the perceptions of risk by each individual. This is the risk of exposure, being rejected, losing control, or being manipulated or betrayed in intimate exchanges. If an individual perceives a high risk in intimacy, they are less likely to engage in these behaviours and therefore more likely to have lower-quality relationships (Brunell, Pilkington & Webster, 2007).
 
Overall, the development of intimacy in a relationship may be influenced by many aspects including conditions that make it more likely to develop such as trust and time as well as differences between genders and other individual differences such as personality and perceptions of risk.
