During this interview, I addressed some of parts highlighted in Ethical Principal 2.1.1 of the social work Code of ethics. I demonstrated professional demeanor and behavior by stating the confidentiality statement and I guided the client to know that she could express herself freely and openly without judgement. When the client and I first sat down I also made sure to set the mood with a relaxed “Good Morning how are you doing today” This lead to start other side conversations consequently creating an atmosphere appropriate for this type of interview. Because we could converse on other subjects besides the actual question. Thus, we could engage in effective communication from the beginning. We were also able to make good non-verbal gestures
Since my journey here at Bryant began in September, I have changed so much. Coming here, I expected certain things such as my study habits, daily routine and friend group to be altered. One change I was not anticipating making was my approach to ethics. Over the course of the past fifteen weeks, my knowledge of ethics as well as my approach to ethics has changed. I have become more knowledgeable about the different approaches to ethics and have gained insight as to where I stand in my approach to ethics.
From examining both ethical statutes, therapists can take it one step forward by taking ownership in violating the bond between therapist and client. Years of education, training and personal responsibility should prevent therapist from violating the bond between client and therapist. Clients entrust therapist with intimate details and instill trust in the therapist. This relationship can sometimes cross boundaries and cause the client to view the therapist in a different light. The same can be said of therapists who have gained the admiration and trust of their client. This places them at an unfair disadvantage and gives them the upper hand and a manipulative stance in entering any relationship outside of the proper scope of the therapist-client relationship.
In conclusion, Ethical codes of conduct are required standards of care created by institutions with individuals providing services inside of them. Ethical codes determine the behavior of the physicians and employees together, the community and their relationship to the organization. Breaking these laws can lead to serious circumstances, since these codes regulate private and confidential information. Because of a code of ethics, physicians are required to maintain a professional relationship with the patient as well as provide them with adequate information concerning them. Ethical codes also have exceptions and complicated situations. For example, an individual diagnosed with HIV or AIDS is at greater risk for spreading the disease and the
“Great individuals have great ethics and great values.” Ethics and morality can be used interchangeably as they sound as if they mean the same although there is a wide distinction between them. “Strictly speaking, morality is used to refer to what we would call moral standards and moral conduct while ethics is used to refer to the formal study of those standards and conduct. For this reason, the study of ethics is also often called moral philosophy." (Gordana D 2007)
Ethical behavior is significant to the development of persuasion, and important to the behavior of humans.It also influences persuasion by developing the progression of persuasion, and increasing those who are accountable for it. A person’s ethical behavior originates with morals and changes into what way an individual is required to connect to encourage effectively and dependably and finishes with who obligation it is to take responsibility in a persuasive interchange. The significance of our ethical behavior is realized within all our origins as human beings and stands as the groundwork of our different societies. We are directed by our ethical customs in the cultures which we create and live. “ The persuader’s determined actions means more under deontological ethics than under teleological ethics”( Magee,2014). According to David B. Resnik, J.D.,( 2011), ethics is defined as standards for behavior that differentiate between tolerable and intolerable conduct. Ethical morals of behavior that specify how an individual should conduct them self centered on ethical responsibilities and qualities.
As humans we are faced with many decisions in life, which in and of itself, distinguishes us from the animal kingdom. I'm sure other animals make decisions, but as humans we take into account our values and morals. In choosing which path to take with some of life's decisions, ethics, are often at the center; heavily influencing our choices between what is right and what is wrong. Which are usually defined by society, as to what is acceptable and what is not. As time goes on, society evolves, so do the right and wrongs, our values and morals, and ethics. In philosophy, there were three ethical theories by Aristotle, Kant, and Bentham & Mill and they were the "Golden Mean",
The code of ethics and conduct is a written set of rules and regulations that provides guidance to employees of an organization on how to conduct themselves and carry out their duties in line with the organization’s principles. The code of ethics and conduct is also be backed up by suitable disciplinary actions. A code of ethics and conducts helps employees deal with ethical issues and other gray areas that they face as they execute their daily activities. An effective code of ethics and conduct is required for an organization to run smoothly and maintain a positive image. Having an ineffective code of ethics and conduct is almost like having none.
It is one thing to establish a code of ethical conduct for an organization in the public sector, but it is quite another to really impress upon all employees the importance of living up to that code of conduct. What makes a code of conduct and how can management be assured that all employees understand the code and follow it's values and guidelines? How do not-for-profit professions stack up against for-profit professionals when it comes to ethics? This paper delves into codes of conduct in the public and sector and provides a review of several scholarly articles that present specific instances where codes of conduct are part of the workplace culture.
When asked about ethics, some people may say, they are personal feelings that tell me what is right from wrong. One might also say, my ethics are in line with my moral values. The statements seem to contradict each other. This leaves us wondering, what are morals, and what are ethics. Which statement is correct? Are either of the statement correct? Are your ethics in line with moral values, or does it have to do with your feelings of right and wrong? There seems to be a bit of confusion about the two, so we must now look into what exactly, morals and ethics are.
The formal definition of ethics is as follows, moral principles that govern a person’s behaviour or the conducting of an activity or alternatively the branch of knowledge that deals with moral principles. (Ethics definition: dictionary.com, 2014)
Ethical people according to Cramwinckel et al. (2013, p.93) are supposed not only to conduct themselves in an ethical manner but also in promoting ethical behaviour by punishing unethical behaviour and rewarding ethical behaviour. In truth, people in government sometimes reward behaviours that are unethical. This essay focuses on the concept of ‘Dirty Hands’, which normally occurs in public administration, especially amongst political leaders who transgress to serve the interest of the public. Still, ‘dirty hand’ concept has been debated extensively in the literature with the objective of establishing whether the ends justify means. Through the terrorism rhetoric and under the pretence of security threats, both the democratic law process and the constitutional limits concept are under attack. Proponents of unilateral public administration action believe that in extreme circumstances, the statutory limitations could be overlooked so as to realise the greater public good. Therefore, getting hands dirty through actions such as privacy invasion, imprisonment without trial, and torture can be justified if the objective is to protect the public interest. Moreover, advocates of dirty hands theory defend the unconstitutional action in emergency and extreme situations, and they still utilise this precedent in justifying and illegal activities for non-emergency policy believed to be in the good interest of the public. This essay seeks to determine whether people in
Ethical conduct is a representation of leader’s self-expression of who they really are, and with past multi-billion dollar companies reported committing unethical and unmoral acts of behavior, it is imperative that leaders fully comprehend the ramifications related to their unethical behavior. Furthermore, an ethical virtue demonstrated by a leader paves the foundation for their followers to behave with the same ethical behavior established within the organization thus establishing a followers’ commitment to their constitution. Additionally, the rise in corporate ethical scandals today representing the unethical behavior and, raising awareness relevant to the probe into their illegal and unethical acts of behavior. The fact that leaders represent the key ingredient within an organization expected to exhibit the utmost ethical behavior has become the cutting edge of issues involving acts of unethical conduct.
Ethics is needed within every organization. Before I get into that concept in great detail, I would first like to explain what ethics is. “The concept has come to mean various things to various people, but generally it 's coming to know what it right or wrong in the workplace and doing what 's right” (McNamara). This doesn’t intercept with the law. Yes, many legal things can be considered ethical and many illegal things can seem unethical, but many legal things can also be unethical. Therefore, something may be right in the eyes of the law but is not necessarily so from an ethical stand point.
