References… References is a 44-year-old man who has been in psychiatric care for most of his adult life. He had many different diagnoses during this period, but regardless of his “true” diagnosis, he was clearly impaired by emotional problems. In the last session, Rick seemed happy and full of energy. Six months ago, he met a woman (named Natalie) in the library, and they decided to get married. Before that, Rick had been married three times. His last wife was hospitalized due to his physical abuse, and his records contain evidence of a similar pattern in previous marriages. He has made no threat against Natalie and vows that he has changed and would never hit her. Therefore, you decide that you have a duty to protect Natalie and calls her immediately after the session with Rick to ask her to attend Rick’s next counselling appointment. You also call Rick to inform him that you have invited Natalie to the next session to discuss their future relationship. During the joint meeting, you will ask Rick to tell Natalie about his history of violence, and if Rick refuses, you want to tell Natalie about it.Instructions:Follow the Ethical Decision-Making Model (outlined below) to critically analyze the ethical case; integrate references to the CCPA ethical principles, standards of practice, relevant practice guidelines and legislation.*The CCPA Ethical Decision-Making Model is aprinciple-based decision-making modelthat incorporates the use of emotional decision-making.
