The American Counseling Association Code of Ethics is a set of guidelines governing the ethical and professional behavior of counselors. If you use the ACA Code of Ethics as a source of information for your paper, you must include the ACA Code of Ethics in a reference list at the end of your paper, just as you would with any other source.
List the authoring organization. In this case, that information should appear as follows:
American Counseling Association
List the date of publication in parentheses and followed by a period. For example:
List the title of the code, followed by a period.
ACA Code of Ethics.
List the city and state of publication, followed by a colon.
List the publisher. Because the publisher is the same as the author, you simply need to list the publisher as "Author."
Ensure that the final citation appears as follows:
American Counseling Association (2014). ACA Code of Ethics. Alexandria, VA: Author.
