Think Like the Test 10 - When the Test Is Wrong

Exam developers work diligently to produce what they believe to be strong, accurate exams. But just like everyone else, they occasionally make mistakes. What should you do when you read a question and you think, none of these answers sound right?

This question comes from the current edition of the official California LPCC Law & Ethics Exam Plan, available here.

During an initial session, a client tells the counselor that she is currently seeing another counselor. She expresses angry feelings toward the other counselor and would like to get another perspective on her problems. What action should the counselor take?

  1. Contract a set number of sessions with the client before sending her back to her current counselor
  2. Inform the client that she needs to terminate her ongoing therapy before the counselor can provide treatment
  3. See the client until she makes up her mind which counselor she wants to have for therapy
  4. Call the current counselor to inform him about the client’s desire to change counselors
