  • Bartering is not recommended. This could lead to role confusion, misleading roles, It can even be overlapping roles, as friends counselors, acquaintance or even BFF’s. Can trust and confidence still be between or is it diminished?
  • A marriage and family therapist in a small farming community agreed to take fresh produce as payment for three sessions with a couple who needed professional advice regarding the management of an elderly parent. A counselor in a small town agreed to see a proud but poverty-stricken client who was mourning the loss of his spouse in return for the client's carpentry work on a charitable home restoration project organized by a group that the counselor actively supported. A psychologist performed a child assessment in exchange for five small potted trees from the parent-owner of a struggling nursery service.

  • It is very important that if you decide to continue with the thought of bartering in order to help your client. The best recommendations is to protect yourself. Have a written agreement. Have your client sign it in front of a mediator. Explain the details of the agreement to avoid confusions.

Bartering Bartering Agreement  Bartering : is when a client pays for his counseling visit for exchange in work, goods, or by working for the therapist.  Ethic code American psychological association (2002) states that; barter is the acceptance of goods, services, or other nonmonetary remuneration from client /patients in return for psychological services. Psychologist may barter only if (1) it is not clinically(2) the resulting arrangement is not exploitative.

    9. 9. Conclusion    The most important thing to remember when entering into any helping field, is that professional boundaries are necessary. Ethical standards set by governing agencies aren't always enough to regulate one's actions and guide one into a safe, beneficial, and effective decision. In counseling, the client is the most important, and it is important to remember that the counselor must keep their well-being in mind at all times.
