    Explanation
    Sexual intimacy with current clients or with known members of the client's family system is prohibited in the field of therapy or counseling. This is to ensure ethical standards and maintain a professional relationship between the therapist and the client.

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Sexual intimacy with former clients or with known members of the client's family system is prohibited in the field of therapy. This is because it can lead to exploitation, power imbalances, and breaches of professional boundaries. Engaging in sexual relationships with former clients or their family members can harm the client's well-being and trust in the therapeutic relationship. Therefore, it is important for therapists to maintain ethical standards and avoid any form of sexual involvement with clients or their families.

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Marriage and family therapists continue therapeutic relationships only as long as clients are benefiting from the relationship. This means that if it becomes evident that clients are not deriving any benefits from the therapy, therapists may choose to terminate the relationship. This approach ensures that therapists are focused on providing effective treatment and not prolonging therapy unnecessarily.

    Explanation
    Marriage and family therapists are bound by ethical guidelines and professional standards that require them to provide appropriate care and ensure the continuity of treatment for their clients. Abandoning or neglecting clients without making reasonable arrangements for the continuation of treatment would be a violation of these guidelines. Therefore, the statement that marriage and family therapists can abandon or neglect clients in treatment without making reasonable arrangements for the continuation of treatment is false.

    Explanation
    Marriage and family therapists are professionals who are bound by ethical guidelines and standards. One of these guidelines is to ensure the safety and well-being of their clients, students, trainees, supervisors, employees, colleagues, or research subjects. Engaging in any form of harassment, including sexual harassment, goes against these ethical guidelines. Therefore, the statement that marriage and family therapists do not engage in sexual or other forms of harassment is true.

    Marriage and family therapists who are authors can indeed plagiarize and fail to give credit to the original creators of ideas or work. However, the given statement suggests that they "CAN" plagiarize and fail to cite, implying that it is a possibility but not a certainty. Therefore, the correct answer is False, as it does not state that they always engage in such unethical practices.

    Marriage and family therapists are indeed allowed to perform forensic services such as interviews, consultations, evaluations, reports, and assessments, as long as they comply with applicable laws and possess the necessary competencies. Therefore, the statement that they may not perform forensic services is false.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    • C.

      Other

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Marriage and family therapists are advised to refrain from providing therapy to clients for whom they have conducted a forensic evaluation. This is to maintain objectivity and avoid any conflict of interest that may arise from having a dual role. Similarly, they should also avoid conducting evaluations for individuals who are already their therapy clients, unless there is a legal requirement to do so. This ensures that the therapist can maintain a clear and unbiased perspective in both therapy and evaluation processes. Therefore, the statement is true.
