Licensure and the Ethical Practice of Counseling in Singapore
Li-Hwa CHONG（張麗花）& Rosaleen OW
This article examines the issue of ethical counseling practice in Singapore. The term “counseling” in Singapore is a loosely shared term among those involved in the provision of social services regardless of whether they had received any formal training in counseling due to the lack of proper professional licensure. Without a formal licensure system, no professional body will have the legal mandate to enforce the quality of counseling services as well as the accountability of counselors’ behaviors. The article raises the question of ethical concerns regarding counseling practice in Singapore and discusses implications for professional licensure in the context of Singapore.
