This course is an overview of ethical reasoning and justification as a model for resolving ethical dilemmas in any situation that the professional could be involved in. It is a What and How course on resolving ethical dilemmas in the workplace and in the profession.
The traditional manner by which ethical dilemmas as resolved is to revisit codes of ethics and use these standards as basis for decision making. While it is admitted that codes are important in resolving dilemmas, they are so construed as "dos" and "don'ts" as to militate against the person's exercise of moral and ethical judgment, which lies at the center of resolving ethical issues and problems. Codes are by their construction prescriptive, do not allow for high critical thought when applied, and are not complete as to incorporate all possible ethical situations that the person may face in his milieu.
