Warm-Up Activity 4.2: Ethical Decision-Making Processes
Multiple ethical decision-making models have been proposed in various disciplines and even within disciplines such as psychology. The common denominator among these models is that each represent a step-by-step process to assist in our thinking logically and critically when faced with an ethical challenge. Several of the most common models are listed below and under your weekly resources:
- PLUS: The Decision Making Process.
- Fisher, M.A. (2015). Ethical Decision-Making Model. The Center for Ethical Practice.
- Josephson Institute of Ethics. (1999). An Ethical Decision-Making Model.
For this task, imagine that you would like to incorporate one of the following into your practice: (1) Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy (2) Motivational Interviewing (3) Assessment for Learning Disabilities or (4) Dialectical Behavior Therapy. Using information based on the APA Standards on Competence and incorporating discussions of the issues from at least three articles found in academic or similar journals, write a paper that discusses what you would need to do to demonstrate competence in one of these techniques.
For an example of the type of article you may consider using, review the following:
Stevens, P. (2000). Practicing within our competence: New techniques create new dilemmas. The Family Journal, 8(3), 278-280. doi:10.1177/1066480700083011 http://tfj.sagepub.com.proxy1.ncu.edu/content/8/3/278
