Course Description:

This ethics workshop presents the virtue ethics model of professional ethics.  Integrity, a meta-ethical virtue, underscores aspirational ethics, the aims of all mental health professions, as well as the professional’s personal congruence.
Virtues or character traits of the individual practitioner ultimately determine the integrity of the ethical decision-making process and the quality of ethical behaviors.  More than codes, guidelines, and principles, the practitioner’s character drives the ethical dimension of professional behaviors.

We will examine professional virtues referenced directly in our codes as well as those which are implied or assumed.  Participants will examine professional virtues involved in common ethical dilemmas such as boundary issues, relationships with colleagues, professional competence, and institutional integrity in professional organizations. As we discuss cases, we will evaluate our professional integrity in terms of Aristotle’s Golden Mean.

Workshop Objectives:
1. Participants will be able to describe key features of virtue ethics;
2. Participants will identify ethical virtues referenced in their codes of ethics;
3. Participants will be able to identify ethical virtues specific to common ethical dilemmas;
4. Participants will be able to apply ethical virtues to actual case dilemmas;
5. Participants will assess character traits/virtues influencing ethical and unethical conduct.
