In addition, present any community resources to which you might refer this student.
• Section 6 – Ethical Dilemma (2–3 pages). Identify and describe an ethical dilemma that arises with your student. Given the complexity of the dilemma, you are to identify an individual from whom you would seek consultation. Identify the steps you will take with your consultant while working through the ethical decision-making process to resolve this dilemma. Discuss how you would start the consultation process and examine the intervention strategies that are recommended to you by the consultant.
