People from all walks of life face many ethical dilemmas. These dilemmas have consequences. Our worldview determines how we deal with these dilemmas, and guides us to the right decisions.

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 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

To achieve such progresses, scientists have made use of prior knowledge, new theories, and technology obtaining numerous prodigious outcomes. Unfortunately, there have been many who have used questionable means for such ends. The German Max Clara is another case of a man with power and knowledge of science, who has misusing them. This paper aims to briefly identify principles and standards that would have been violated these days according to the existing APA Code of Ethics. Finally, ethical implications of making a moral judgment on past actions by researchers regarding human experimentation are discussed.

I have experienced many ethical dilemmas in my lifetime, so I know that there is no such thing as an ethical dilemma that only affects one person. I also know that some ethical dilemmas are easier to resolve than others are. The easy ones are the ones in which we can make decisions on the spot. For example, if a cashier gives me too much change, I can immediately make a decision to either return the money or keep it. Based on Kant’s, categorical imperative there are two criteria for determining moral right and wrong. First, there is universalizability, which states, “the person’s
Consequentialism – as looked at above, consequentialism has many different approaches but all truly focus on maximising the happiness of an individual or others. Jeremy Bentham, British philosopher and key advocate of utilitarianism, the approach where maximising happiness and minimising pain for the greatest number of people is key to decision making stated “It is the greatest good to the greatest number of people which is the measure of right and wrong”. Egoism, Altruism and Asceticism focus on the maximization of happiness for individuals and others. Observing Sophie’s decision from a consequentialist, and mainly utilitarian approach – as this is the most commonly observed consequentialist theory; we can state that Sophie made the correct
Melia strongest attribute is her ability to connect with callers in a personable manner that makes them feel comforted. She is always respectful and kind and truly has a heart to want to help each caller. Melia needs to improve by following the scripts. She makes up her own version and will go out of order. For an Encouraging Word prayer call, she gave a lady the daily devotional and she never asked for it. She also gave her the prayer resource and didn't mention it to the caller. On a TCT call, a gentleman was looking for something that was on TBN and because he couldn't find it, Melia gave him a free devotional, yet never told him he'd be receiving it. She doesn't follow the script for the NAPE and had difficulty with listening to the callers,

Everyday we are tested as individuals to make the right choice. How we view ourselves as individuals and how others view us are directly correlated to our moral decision-making. But morals are somewhat misleading. What might be a wrong decision for one person might be a solution to another. So how do we define morals? Do we follow Gods’ moral rules because to do so would increase out likelihood of obtaining salvation in the afterlife? Or is it simpler than that. Is God going to deny our entrance into heaven because we have run a stop sign here and there? No. I believe our moral values are much simpler than that. I believe that our moral decision-making comes from our upbringing of what is right or wrong. Our parents and
