The globalization of psychology-counseling in Ukraine began about 30 years ago. Since the establishment of applied psychology in the early 1990s, the pro- fession is still forming its standards of education, training, and standards of care. Ukraine legislation has actively developed in the last ten years, especially given the needs presented with the Ukrainian-Russian war. Ukrainian psycholo- gists-counselors address the needs of hundreds of thousands of recent veter- ans and displaced people that fled occupied territories. Therefore, the stand- ards of care and the need for an updated unified ethical code are actively dis- cussed in Ukraine at present. The purpose of this paper was to discuss universal principles of ethics that could be contextualized to update the Ukrainian eth- ics code for psychological counseling. The authors apply social dominance the- ory and the contextual model of psychotherapy to illustrate ethical guiding prin- ciples that need to be considered in the developing code of ethics. Case study examples are provided to illustrate global ethical principles application with the cultural sensitivity and respect for the global environment. The paper concludes with concluding social implications to ethical practice within Ukraine and gui- dance for future research.
