Abstract The purpose of this paper is to show how ethics play a significant role in the success of group therapy. Group therapy sessions can be very beneficial and can also have different results than individual therapy due to the dynamics of what goes on in a group including things like exercises. A group an work off each others ideas and socialize in ways that are similar to role play. The ethical boundaries established by the leader early on in the beginning stages of the group will set the tone for how the group runs, processes, and respects each other. Expectations of issues like confidentiality must ethically be addressed so the clients understand the severity of the information they are being asked to keep private.
Question 1 Utilitarianism Ethics It would seem in this instance if “2 Day FM’s Hot 30” was to broadcast the prank, it would not promote the greater good. The greater good could include the company maintaining their public perception of ethical behaviour and being compassionate to all individuals. The negatives could be that the radio station might feel restricted in what they can and cannot do, and this may be another indicator of that fact. Specifically, how they cannot share a humorous prank on air. By using utilitarianism ethics it would seem the benefits of not airing the prank would be more beneficial.
Many professionals have created rules and guidelines to follow when ethical questions or dilemmas arise in the workplace. Interpreters have followed this pattern, as the RID and AVLIC have Codes of Ethics. Although these guidelines are helpful, they do not cover every situation. Interpreters must not only follow the Code of Ethics, but must also have strong personal morals as well as ethical judgment to be tested in the workplace. This essay will cover a situation in which an interpreter is faced with an ethical dilemma; whether or not to turn in a hearing student they catch cheating.
I was surprised that my blind spot was identified to be overconfidence in process because I rarely feel confident in anything. My values were described to be justice and fortitude and resultant behaviors are that I demonstrate courage and steadiness in the face of obstacles and I tend to avoid rash actions. My ethical lens directs my academic behavior by giving me good reasoning skills and allowing me to think through problems carefully and research all options. My ethical lens influences my critical thinking because it allows me to make informed decisions that I find are best for the well-being of everyone around me. I believe that a person’s emotions can influence critical thinking because some people’s ethical lens is more heartfelt and can let them make decisions with their emotions instead of with their knowledge and brain.

This can be hard to accomplish when individuals misperceive what is morally right with other moral agents such as self-interest, personal desires, and peer/community beliefs. “Because of complexities such as these, ethically motivated individuals must learn the art of self-critique, of moral self-examination, to become attuned to the pervasive everyday pitfalls of moral judgment: moral intolerance, self-deception, and uncritical conformity. The rules and principles of critical thinking do apply to ethics because they both follow the same guidelines. Critical Thinking helps people determine for themselves whether something is right or wrong. It is a form of analysis and determination of fact vs. fiction, identifying the unknown and coming to an understanding.
“I Want Those Sweeties” Classical rhetoric, from my understanding, is ways of using persuasion to appeal to an audience using the ethos, logos, or pathos appeal. Ethos is based on ethics; using moral grounds such as trustworthiness, loyalty, and dependability to appeal to the audience. This appeal may also use the help of a spokesperson, celebrity, or authority figure to get the point across. Logos, being based on logic, uses statistics, facts, experiments, and data to prove the point and have the audience feel as though it were “common sense” to choose the product. Last, pathos drives off of the emotions of the audience; persuading and manipulating them into feeling a very strong emotion towards the appeal.
May 21, 2014 ETH/216 Ethics Essay Virtue ethics emphasize the roles of a person characters and what they embody for determining their ethical behavior. Virtue ethics places an importance on developing good character traits, instead of focusing on a set of rules that one should follow. Through virtue ethics, a person can break bad habits that they have acquired over period of time.

The opportunity is if you change negative conversations to positive, you can change the culture for the better.
