C.2.d. MONITORING EFFECTIVENESS
"Counselors continually monitor their effectiveness as professionals and take steps to improve when necessary. Counselors take reasonable steps to seek peer supervision to evaluate their efficacy as counselors" (ACA, 2014, p. 8).
"Students and supervisees monitor themselves for signs of impairment from their own physical, mental, or emotional problems and refrain from offering or providing professional services when such impairment is likely to harm a client or others" (ACA, 2014, p. 13).
"Counselors monitor themselves for signs of impairment from their own physical, mental, or emotional problems and refrain from offering or providing professional services when impaired. They seek assistance for problems that reach the level of professional impairment, and, if necessary, they limit,
suspend, or terminate their professional responsibilities until it is determined that they may safely resume their work" (ACA, 2014, p. 9).
