Course Abstract

With renewed interest in ethical decision making and with mandates imposed by states and professional associations to acquire continuing education in the area of ethics, the need has arisen to provide practitioners with practical information regarding ethics education. This course utilizes scenarios and hit songs to illustrate the ethical decision making process as it relates to professional practice, with special emphasis on delineating differences between those violations that represent code of ethics issues, those that represent legal infractions, and those that involve elements of both legal and ethical problems.

EXCELLENT EXAMPLES AND PACKED FULL OF GREAT INFORMATION RELEVANT TO MY FIELD
Review by: Anna on September 18, 2014
From this course, I learned that something can be ethical but immoral. That was eye opening to me. As was the realization that we each bring our own set of morals that may differ from one another, but is not necessarily unethical. I tend to hold myself and others to a very high standard that I am realizing is not necessarily part of the code of ethics. Thank you for this informative course.
