Ethical Maturity and Advancing Practice Wisdom

Elisabeth Shaw

When we think about “ethics” or “ethical practice” our minds can move in two main directions: that this relates to serious transgressions (which does not involve us) or that this is something to do with our professional codes (which we will read if and when required). In fact, our need to respond ethically occurs in a myriad of small ways that make up the moment to moment relational transactions through which we deliver our services. This should mean that discussions about ethics are commonplace with colleagues, and yet they are often not.
