The 2014 ACA Code of Ethics expanded the gatekeeping role of counselor educators. Gatekeeping practices such as supervision, evaluation, remediation, and dismissal are used to ensure counselors-in-training do no harm to potential clients. What happens when such practices are impacted by pressures from students, administration, and institutional challenges? This presentation will explore the role of gatekeeping as a form of social justice and its associated challenges.
