一、Introduction综述

The ICF Code of Ethics describes the core values of the International Coach Federation (ICF Core Values), and ethical principles and ethical standards of behavior for all ICF Professionals (see definitions).
ICF道德准则描述了国际教练组织联盟(ICF)的核心价值观,以及面向所有ICF专业教练的行为道德原则和道德标准。

Meeting these ICF ethical standards of behavior is the first of the ICF core coaching competencies (ICF Core Competencies). That is “Demonstrates ethical practice: understands and consistently applies coaching ethics and standards.”
教练行为符合ICF道德标准是ICF教练核心能力的第一项,即“展现道德准则:理解并持续应用教练道德准则和标准。”

The ICF Code of Ethics serves to uphold the integrity of ICF and the global coaching profession by:
ICF道德准则通过以下几个方面来支持ICF和全球教练行业的正直性:

Setting standards of conduct consistent with ICF core values and ethical principles
设定与ICF核心价值观和道德原则相一致的行为标准
Guiding ethical reflection, education, and decision-making
指导道德反思、教育和决策
Adjudicating and preserving ICF coach standards through the ICF Ethical Conduct Review (ECR) process
通过ICF道德行为审查(ECR)流程裁定和维护ICF教练标准
Providing the basis for ICF ethics training in ICF-accredited programs
为ICF认证项目中的ICF道德培训提供基础

The ICF Code of Ethics applies when ICF Professionals represent themselves as such, in any kind of coaching-related interaction. This is regardless of whether a coaching Relationship (see definitions) has been established.
ICF道德准则适用于ICF专业人士的任何教练相关的互动中。无论教练关系(见定义)是否已经建立。

This Code articulates the ethical obligations of ICF Professionals who are acting in their different roles as coach, coach supervisor, mentor coach, trainer or student coach-in-training, or serving in an ICF Leadership role, as well as Support Personnel (see definitions).
这份规范陈述了ICF专业人士在不同角色中,如教练、教练督导(SC导师,MC导师)、教练培训讲师或教练学员,或者ICF领导角色和支持人士(见定义)的道德义务。

Although the Ethical Conduct Review (ECR) process is only applicable to ICF Professionals, as is the Pledge, the ICF Staff are also committed to ethical conduct and the Core Values and Ethical Principles that underpin this ICF code of ethics.
尽管道德行为审查(ECR)流程只适用于ICF专业人士。作为誓约,ICF员工也需要对这份ICF道德准则的基础——道德行为、核心价值观和道德原则作出承诺。

The challenge of working ethically means that members will inevitably encounter situations that require responses to unexpected issues, resolution of dilemmas and solutions to problems.
在工作中遵守道德准则的挑战在于,我们经常需要应对:预料之外的情况、左右为难的处境以及需要解决的问题。

This Code of Ethics is intended to assist those persons subject to the Code by directing them to the variety of ethical factors that may need to be taken into consideration and helping to identify alternative ways of approaching ethical behavior.
这份道德准则旨在支持那些需要遵守规范的人们,引导他们考虑各种道德因素,并帮助他们识别替代方式来实现符合道德的行为。

ICF Professionals who accept the Code of Ethics strive to be ethical, even when doing so involves making difficult decisions or acting courageously.

接受道德准则的ICF专业人士,尽可能符合道德准则,即使这样做会让你面对困难的决策或者需要付出勇气行为。
