A Framework for Thinking Ethically

A Framework for Thinking Ethically

We all have an image of how we are when we act "at our best." We also have our own idea of how an ethical community, or society should act. There are two fundamental problems in identifying the ethical standards we are to follow:

1. On what do we base our ethical standards?

2. How do those standards get applied to specific situations we face?

This workshop will focus on how we determine our actions when we are “at our best” and helps us to identify the ethical standards by which we determine  those actions.

Learning Objectives:  Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:

1. Understand the definition of ethics and what ethics is and is not.
2. Learn the stages of ethical (moral) development.
3. Understand why it is difficult to identify ethical standards.
4. Learn about the five historical approaches to ethical decision making.
5. Learn to develop a personal approach to ethical decision making.


Upon completion of this course attendees will earn 3 Category I Contact Hours including 3 Ethics Hours.
