Ethics-Professionalism Courses

The four ethicists on our teaching team, all with doctoral-level training in ethics, have decades of collective experience supporting a variety of organizations, hospitals and clinics, non-profit groups and ministry, higher education and many in the helping professions. With particular specialties in bioethics and health care ethics, psychology and counseling ethics, policy and research ethics, and diversity and communication ethics, we are committed to interdisciplinary rigor and respectful dialogue, honoring the ethical commitments of every profession as we explore communication patterns, codes of conduct, boundaries and roles, virtuous practices and character, moral distress, humanism, responsibility and resilience. Our courses, curricula and lectures are always customized to the needs and culture of the individual or organization.
