Psychology – Attitudes and Beliefs

Psychology – Attitudes and Beliefs. The Standard A.4.b. of the American Counseling Association’s (ACA) 2014 Code of Ethics mandates the following  regarding personal values:

“Counselors are aware of their own values, attitudes, beliefs, and behaviors and avoid imposing values that are inconsistent with counseling goals. Counselors respect the diversity of clients, trainees, and research participants” (ACA, 2014, p. 5).

Therefore, it is important that counselors and counselor trainees spend time identifying their own values, understanding the origin of these values, and honestly owning how personal values may adversely affect the counselor’s ability to work with certain populations or mental illnesses.

Psychology - Attitudes and Beliefs

Step 1

Read and complete the Attitudes & Beliefs Inventory below (see p. 2). When you are finished, go back over the  inventory and select three questions you had the strongest reactions to and/or you had the mostdifficult time answering.

Your paper should be 5-7 pages, (excluding title page, abstract, reference page), written in APA format, including a title page, abstract, introduction, body, conclusion, and references. Your paper should be well thought out and demonstrate critical thinking, self-evaluation, and practical application. Your paper must include at least 5 scholarly references published within the last 5 years. All sources must be scholarly journal articles outside of course materials, materials from other classes, and applicable to the counseling profession. No websites or direct quotes. This assignment should be written in 1st person. Psychology – Attitudes and Beliefs.

Step 2

Divide your paper into the three required headings below and address the following questions within each section:


State the 3 questions that evoked the strongest reaction in you, and/or, you found most difficult to answer. Why? What personal value(s) and/or belief(s) did each question seem to  contradict or seemed to cause some personal incongruence within you?


When, from whom, and how, did you learn this (these) value(s)/belief(s)?


What personal or professional work do you still need to do around this issue?

Step 3

Psychology – Attitudes and Beliefs. When you have completed your paper, save it as a Microsoft Word document under your name and assignment title (Example: Doe_J Attitudes and Beliefs_Paper). Submit your paper via the assignment submission link in Canvas. If the final paper you submit contains entire sentences or paragraphs that have a high similarity index to other sources, it may indicate either unintentional or intentional plagiarism. You may be contacted by your instructor. Use APA referencing style.
