Course Description: Many of us strive to be ethical in our personal and professional lives. But most of us have little idea of the major moral theories underlying our ethical decision-making. This webinar will start with a tour of the history of ethics from our religious, philosophical, and psychological heritage. Next, we will look at the advantages and disadvantages of the four major ethical theories and approaches-including the consequentialist (outcomes-based), the deontological (duty-based), and blended approaches. And finally, we will construct our personal ethical philosophy and develop a checklist to better manage ethical conundrums in our clinical practices.
- Discuss the historical underpinnings of the major ethical theories.
- Explain the theories from meta, normative, and practical vantage points.
