Meta ethics tries to make sense of the terms and concepts used in ethical theories. Some people believe that ethical language is extremely meaningful as they argue it is essential to be able to define terms such as “good” and “bad” before we can even begin to discuss ethical theories. However others disagree with this and argue that moral statements are subjective so cannot be meaningful as they cannot be described as either true or false. Those who hold cognitive theories about ethical language would argue that ethical statements are meaningful as they are about facts and can therefore be proved true or false. Ethical Naturalism is a cognitive theory of Meta ethics which holds the belief that ethical statements are the same as non ethical ones, so can be verified or falsified in the same way.

Amy Thompson Unit 14 1.1 The person centred approach is keeping the individual present and actively participating in the types of care that they would wish to receive including when and how.

It also give a further advantage to the care staff as they are more aware of the needs and types of care that are expected by the resident. For example if the resident doesn’t wish to be washed by a male member of staff this should influence all areas of that persons care.
Therefore, deontologists follow the belief that certain actions are inherently good if they follow the stated rules even if the action has bad consequences, it can still be defined as moral. In contrast, teleological ethical systems focus completely on the outcomes and consequences of an act. Teleology is a theory of ethics according to which the rightness of an act is determined by it's end. Also known as consequentialism, actions that result in what can be considered as a good consequence must be good and so the end result will justify the reason that the act was committed in the first place. Both deontological and teleological ethical systems use opposing ethical guides yet they both have the same aim, to help people make moral decisions.

Human service professionals articulate behavior, which can effectively express sympathy and empathy for the clients. The human service field requires my ability of responsibility and integrity to assist those gaining knowledge of the human service objectives.
