Student-led ethical dilemma discussions were incorporated into counseling ethics instruction for school counselor trainees (SCTs). Phenomenological content analysis was employed to gain insight into the experiences of SCTs who participated in this teaching and learning strategy. Fifteen (n = 15) master’s level SCTs responded to open-ended questions about their experiences with the dilemma discussions. The following themes emerged from the data: (a) social learning, (b) self-awareness, (c) subjective learning experience, and (d) applied learning. A description of the teaching method is discussed as well as implications for counseling ethics instruction.
