Tentatively identify all possible courses of action and the participants involved in each, along with possible benefits and risks for each.
The social worker, too, may gain some solace in the process. Thoroughly examine the reasons in favor of and opposed to each possible course of action, considering relevant a ethical theories, principles, and guidelines; b codes of ethics and legal principles; c social work practice theory and principles; and d personal values including religious, cultural, and ethnic values and political ideology. In recent years, social work students and practitioners have been introduced to the rudiments of ethical theory—grounded in moral philosophy—as a tool in the analysis of ethical dilemmas.
Briefly, classic ethical theory involves various schools of thought concerning what constitutes morally right and wrong action in the face of ethical dilemmas. For example, according to the deontological perspective—often associated with 18th-century German philosopher Immanuel Kant—certain actions are inherently right or wrong, or good or bad. Deontological statements include the following: Always tell the truth, always obey the law, and never kill an innocent person.
From this vantage point, the social worker should conduct a utilitarian calculus a phenomenon introduced more than a century ago by philosophers Jeremy Bentham and John Stuart Mill , weighing the potential benefits and costs of each possible course of action. Although there are several versions of utilitarianism—also known as consequentialism—the most common states that when faced with an ethical dilemma, one should act in a manner that produces the greatest balance of good over bad consequences. In addition to considering pertinent ethical theories and their respective strengths and limitations, the social worker should also consult relevant codes of ethics and legal principles.
The social worker in this case must also be cognizant of legal issues. Of course, the social worker should also draw on his or her knowledge of pertinent ethical theory and principles, especially concerning key ethics concepts and clinical phenomena related to grief and loss.
Consult with colleagues and appropriate experts such as agency staff, supervisors, agency administrators, attorneys, ethics scholars, and ethics committees. Any social worker who faces difficult, complex ethical decisions should make a concerted effort to consult with knowledgeable colleagues and ethics experts. Some human services agencies now sponsor ethics committees—formally known as institutional ethics committees—whose members have training in ethics-related matters and provide collegial consultation.
In some settings—usually healthcare agencies such as teaching hospitals and rehabilitation facilities—professional ethicists may be available for consultation. Page 2. My particular approach to doing applied ethics is a holistic decision-making approach that I have taught to thousands of human-service professionals, and many, not all by any means, find it to be very useful.
Real World Ethics by Robert J. Nash | Waterstones
I approach ethical decision-making very holistically: both personally from the head and the heart of where I and others live, and where we actually construct our moral lives. I also approach ethical decision-making professionally as an activity that takes place in the actual organizations where you and I spend so much of our time trying to reach collective closure on the ethical problems that plague us.
Whatever I teach and write is inescapably influenced by my own personal moral beliefs, by both my informal and formal ethical training, by my career-long work as a teacher and scholar, and, perhaps, most important, by my personal interactions with students and colleagues who frequently seek my ethical advice in the work they do. It is a general way of thinking about, and resolving, ethical dilemmas of one kind or another.
It grows out of the real- life stories that people like you and I actually live, and love, and tell.
