Ethical dilemmas occur when there is a disagreement about a situation and all parties involved question how they should behave based on their individual ethical morals. (Newman & Pollnitz, 2005). The dilemma that I will be addressing in this essay involves Michael, recently employed male educator working in the nursery, and parents of a baby enrolled at the centre. The parents have raised concerns about male educators changing their child’s nappy as they have cultural practices that do not allow this practice to take place. This situation is classed as an ethical dilemma as there is a dispute between cultural beliefs and legal requirements within the workplace. There are four parties involved (parents, child, educator and director), all
If Emanuel accepts the offer he benefits greatly because he will be able to complete his assignments efficiently in his dorm room instead of using the college library but Microsoft will not profit and the roommate will have broken the law and potentially receive a penalty or fine for sharing a licensed product. But if Emanuel denies his roommates offer and
NOTE: Since this is an actual, real-life case, your focus should be on producing creative and new thinking that applies the ethical concepts to the material. Also, include an introduction and conclusion in your paper. You are encouraged to use the headings above in Action Item 7 in your paper for organizational purposes.
The two major ethical considerations that are important to address are 9.02 - Use of Assessments and 9.06 - Interpreting Assessment Results. 9.02 - Use of Assessments is particularly important because the psychologist must consider the individual’s language preference and competence. As was noted in the initial case description, Brandon’s parents are both Polish immigrants, and Brandon spoke Polish in home until he attended junior kindergarten. Although he may not have an accent, his language preference should be noted as English may not be the language he is more comfortable using. 9.06 - Interpreting Assessment Results should also be considered. Brandon’s test-taking abilities should be highlighted, as he is suspicious and ambivalent towards the psychological testing. These feelings may negatively affect his test scores, as he may try to either hide how he truly feels, or lie to make himself seem better or worse. It should also be noted that there could be other client characteristics that affect his scores as well, particularly cultural factors.
What principles would you need to be aware of when dealing with the ethical dilemmas in this case study?
Finally, she finds out that she’s pregnant, however, her blood tests show that the baby she is carrying has the markers for Down Syndrome. Susan’s doctor recommends that she terminate the pregnancy, but Susan is not content with that option. While she wants to maintain a balance between work and family life, Susan isn’t sure that abortion is the option that best fits her situation. She doesn’t want the baby to live a life of suffering, so she consults Richard, a professor of evolutionary biology.

The case that is being evaluated is about a woman named Susan that is considering abortion. She finally becomes pregnant after years of trying but quickly finds out through a blood test that the baby has Down syndrome. Her career has become successful and important to her so she does not want to give it up but wants to obtain a healthy balance between family and work. Struggling with the decision and not completely comfortable with abortion, she seeks the advice of Richard, an evolutionary biologist who has dedicated his career to human potential and decreasing human suffering.

A woman gets pregnant after a long time of trying, however, medical tests confirm that the baby has Down syndrome. She has a successful career but wants to maintain it balance with her family. Although the woman feels uncomfortable with abortion, her doctor suggests it as the best option. On the other hand, she looks for advice with a recognized professor, who is an expert in human potential and suffering, and he also suggests abortion as the most ethical solution to avoid bringing suffering to the world. The moral issue falls in the decision of either terminate the pregnancy, and therefore life of the fetus, or give birth to a baby that will need special care for his/her entire life. Therefore, in this case scenario there are limited solutions; other than choosing to abort or keep the baby, the mother could also consider giving the baby for adoption as a plan. These three alternatives may be subjected to moral judgements since abortion is a form of killing, bring life to the world without the proper care is a

Some civil rights organizations warn the laws will result in ethic profiling. The Obama administration is suing law makers for violating on federal prerogatives.

It is important that the interview questions are not biased or leading, and that the questions do not cause any psychological or emotional harm. The subject will not be intentionally deceived. The questions and data interpretation have an ethical consideration to be valid and truthful for the research institution and for the scholarly body as a whole. Another consideration is the safety of the interviewee because the study wants honest and sincere answers, but it also does not want to leave the interviewee in a vulnerable state or location. The concern of a power differential between the interviewee and interviewer is important because the interviewer will be from a university, and the interviewee will be unemployed and possibly even homeless.

“Brad is a production engineer at a bicycle company and part of his job includes inspecting broken bikes and drafting the design repairs for their repair” (Bartlett). Brad is considering replacing a broken brake cable with a more durable material, even though the customer did not request it in their order and specifically requested that “No aesthetic changes be made to the bike” (Bartlett). Brad’s manager suggests that his considered actions would go against the company’s policy of “The customer is always right.” Should Brad disobey the manager and the customer to possibly lose his job or go along with
