Aspirational Ethics: Let Your Best Self Decide
Presented by: Jim Jensen, MAC, CADC II
Is your ethical decision making driven by avoidance of legal consequesnces and ensuring you protect yourself and your agency? Would you like to learn another way to look at ethical issues that allows you to seek guidance from within? The purpose of this training is to incorporate Aspirational and Virtue Ethics into your ethical decision making process. We will analyze various ethical dilemmas using aspirational ethics tools, critical thinking techniques, self-awareness, and envisioning. You will gain a better understanding of perspectives that can both prevent and address ethical dilemmas. This is an intermediate level training intended for participants with some experience in the helping professions. Come prepared to create and dissect difficult ethical dilemmas regarding confidentiality, informed consent, boundaries and much more.
