By using utilitarianism ethics it would seem the benefits of not airing the prank would be more beneficial. As this would be seen by the radio station as maintaining their professional integrity, it would avoid the possibility of impacting their relationships with multiple stakeholders negatively. From the positives and negatives discussed, it would seem under utilitarianism ethics the prank would not be ethical to broadcast. Kantian Ethics The decision to not air the prank would not be delayed under Kantian ethics. As the main issue at stake is the process of the matter; therefore the principle of duty must be followed.
This is the ability to be you without pretence or façade. This is also called genuineness; it is the most important attribute in counselling according to Rogers, in this the counsellor is keen to allow the client to experience them as they really are, the therapist being authentic. Unconditional Positive Regard: (UPR) this is a non-judgemental, Respecting and accepting the other person as they are, Rogers believed that for people to grow and fulfil their potential it is important that they are valued as themselves. The counsellor has a genuine regard for the client, they may not approve of some of the client’s actions, but the therapist does approve of the client. The therapist needs an attitude of “I’ll accept you as you are.” The therapist must always maintain a positive attitude to the client at all times.
I believe if Teddy’s had its policy communicated more clearly to its employees, Virginia Pollard would not have been harassed and man would not put her in such a situation as they would know what the potential consequences could be. 4. I do not think that Pollard’s case would have been different if her replacement has been a female. Virginia Pollard was a victim of discrimination and sexual harassment and that is what has already happened. If her replacement was a female Teddy’s could use that to show that they are not discriminating towards whom they are hiring and the policy is in the effect.
The court held that in the instant case the court had either found that these conditions were met or they were undisputed. Therefore, the communication was privileged and protected from disclosure. I believe the criteria set forth in RFF Family Partnership, LP v. Burns & Levinson is a very practical and rational one. It allows the lawyer to protect and serve his fiduciary duty to his client, and at the same time if a conflict should come up, it allows the lawyer to seek advice of a lawyer without the fear intimidation by way of disclosure. Such privileged communications lead to resolutions in resolving existing conflicts, and avoiding potential conflicts.
Such ability is considered at the essence of all effective therapeutic relationships. Clearly if the therapist holds certain judgements for the client which for whatever reason cannot be put aside for the benefit of the client there is an immediate barrier to effective rapport building. At the very least the client may detect in some intangible way such a barrier and sense it as the therapists’ ‘dislike’ of them which would immediately hinder their susceptibility to relaxing and engaging honestly with the therapist. ‘If your belief system gets in the way of working with a particular client, then you must refer that client to someone else who would be comfortable with them’ Ericksonian Approaches A Comprehensive Manual Battino & South Crown House Publishing 1999. Building a positive regard with your client however, goes beyond your own personal beliefs.
With reference to Singer’s statement that, “… prevent evil… without sacrificing something of comparable moral significance”, in as much as the act of helping a friend who is suffering in a critical condition is morally good, in contrast, it is morally wrong to rob people at gun point. It would be sacrificing something of comparable moral significance for another. In other words, it is wrong to do a wrong action because of a right one. Singer also emphasizes the fact that you must be in the position to help. I think is a plausible idea since you cannot give what you do not have.
This includes any verbal, written, telephonic, audio or video recorded information. Both ethical codes assert that the counselor and the clients should agree and set the limits of confidentiality. The counselors are also not permitted to share clients’ confidential information among themselves unless the client has given his or her consent. Both ethical codes also provide that records of the counseling proceedings should be kept in a secure location where they will not get into the wrong hands. One major contrast in the area of confidence is that; while the ACA ethical codes allow the counselor to immediately disclose client’s information on the issue of a subpoena, AACC ethical codes on the other hand provide that the counselor shall not disclose the information immediately but shall first give the client an opportunity to consult with his or her
promoting choice and rights (4.1) Promoting individuality reduces the likelihood of abuse by enabling the vulnerable adults to feel part of their care by promoting their interests, aspirations and understand that everyone care needs are different. Getting to know your patients helps to create a strong bold and good working relationship. Promoting rights allows the vulnerable adults allows them to feel that their wishes and voice is heard and recognised and allows them to be individuals. Abuse is reduced by person centred values because institutional abuse often stems from things being done to people because it's convenient for the staff. The individual's feelings and preferences are not considered.
This could be regarded as the distribution of moral justice, choosing on which principle they are morally obliged to follow (Steinbock, 2007, p22). “When principles contingently conflict, no supreme principle is available in the four-principle approach to determine an overriding obligation. Therefore, discretionary judgment becomes an inescapable part of moral thinking in our approach” (Beauchamp, 2010, p44). The respect for autonomy obliges health care professionals to ensure patients understand all the information they require enabling them to make an informed choice. If patients have the understanding to make an informed choice then the professional must respect the autonomous choices they make (Childress, 1990).
5 Effective Communication Law 5 (The 5 Inevitable Laws of effective Communication) that we have developed and summarized in a single word that reflects the essence of the communication itself is REACH, which means embracing or grabbing. Since real communication is essentially an effort to how we grabbed the attention, love, interest, concern, sympathy, response, and a positive response from others. Law # 1: Respect The first law in developing effective communication is respect for every individual to whom the message that we deliver. Respect and mutual respect is the first law we communicate with others. Remember that in principle people want to be valued and considered important.
