Ethics and Impartiality

MED 514
Description: Conflict professionals have a responsibility to their clients, the public and the field to practice in an ethical manner. The course explores personal, philosophical, and professional dimensions of ethics through a critical examination of institutional standards, codes and peculiar challenges posed by the mainstays of neutrality and impartiality to ethical decision-making. Students will integrate ethical frameworks from helping and non-helping professions, and consider cross-cultural issues in developing their own professional ethical framework for practice. By course end, students will be conversant in formal codes and standards, as well as be well equipped to recognize their limitations and respond appropriately to unique challenges posed by their work as conflict professionals
