A Blueprint of Standards and Models of Ethics for Peer and Prevention Professionals
Pages 22

Knowledge about professional ethics is absolutely necessary. You cannot be a program evaluator or operate programs without being well versed in ethics if you want to avoid serious troubles. It is your responsibility to know the ethics and laws that pertain to both your role as a program evaluator and that of a peer program professional. The intention of knowing about ethics and laws is to avoid unnecessarily jeopardizing yourself physically, emotionally, socially, and monetarily.
