Target Audience

Description

From baseball fields, to boardrooms, to Wall Street, the news today is awash with examples of lapses in ethical conduct. Social workers, psychologists, nurses and other helping professionals are not immune to ethical challenges as they strive to address difficult situations with scarce resources and increased pressures for productivity and efficiency. Often the dilemmas these professionals face are not simply a choice between right and wrong, but between two imperfect choices.

This program is intended to build upon earlier ethics training and assist participants in examining difficult ethical dilemmas. After a review of core ethical principles and a decision making framework, participants will discuss complex ethical dilemmas provided by the instructor as well as those generated by the group to determine options for addressing vexing ethics challenges.
