dc.description.abstract Unique ethical and social challenges impact counsellor competence in rural communities where there is limited access to supervision, colleagues, and professional development. In the rural context geographical isolation, small populations, and limited counselling resources contribute to ethical issues for counsellors related to dual relationships, professional isolation, and generalist counselling practice. This manual provides a review of literature regarding rural counselling issues, ethical considerations, and counselling competence. The literature is consolidated as considerations and recommendations for beginning rural counsellors. A brief resource list of counselling-related associations in British Columbia is included to promote awareness of ethical codes and practice standards. The manual is intended to broaden understanding of rural counselling issues, and the supports and information rural counsellors need to ensure that the client’s best interests are competently met. en
