The term is also applied to any system or theory of moral values or principles. Ethics deals with such questions at all levels. Its subject consists of the fundamental issues of practical decision making, and its major concerns include the nature of ultimate value and the standards by which human actions can be judged right and wrong. The terms ethics and morality are closely related. It is now common to refer to ethical judgements or to ethical principles where it once would have been more accurate to speak of moral judgements or moral principles.
In McCartney, Steve, and Rick Parent. Ethics in Law Enforcement. BCcampus, BC Open Textbook Project, 2015 they state, “We instinctively know that it is good to be moral and act with integrity, but by coming to an understanding of the reasons for morality and integrity, we will be motivated to champion such behaviour.” I believe ethics is important in our everyday lives. We must understand these basic principles and how they relate to the different aspects in humanity. It also says that, “Where ethics are taken seriously, and people strive to make ethical decisions and actions, personal and professional success follows.” This is saying that people, who take their ethical
It is imperative to cohere to ethical norms in psychological research for various reasons and as a volunteer I would expect the psychologist to do the same. Ethics set boundaries in research limiting to what the psychologist can or cannot do. It is especially important when the subjects are humans or animals as their safety and care has to be considered. A few of the most critical guidelines as per me would be:
An individual who is well acquainted in the belief of following a specific religion, lives their life according to a set of principles and guidelines in carrying out certain actions and assisting in the decision making of what will seem acceptable and ethical in both the corporate sector and in society as a whole. Each religious group is just as significant and important as the next. Each group follows a specific holy book, in which they can reference their beliefs and practices. According to Christianity, Christians believe in the 'Holy Bible ' together with the 'Ten Commandments '. It is a set of guiding principles to live accordingly, as to how God would want them to live their lives in a desirable manner.
It requires a practitioner who is willing to shed stereotypes and be an authentic person in the therapeutic relationship. Therefore, the counsellor will need to adhere to a specific code of ethics so as to maintain good practice in the professional relationship. It should be added that the ethical concern in counselling definitely includes values, principles and personal moral qualities of the counsellor towards the client. Thus, “To become an ethical professional, an individual needs to grasp ethics information and knowledge through direct ethics instruction and direct life experiences, which can be developed over time” (Israel & Lassonde, 2007; Jungers & Gregoire, 2013) Let us first of all have an overview of “What do ethics mean” – ethics defines the elements essential to human well-being and proposes principles to be used as guidelines for generating an ethical culture. Kitchener (1986) highlighted “that
Good ethics guides us when taking a decision, it makes us who we are and it surly determines our future. Ethics are involved in today’s world in all aspects of life; in politics, medicine, law, religion and society. Ayn Rand, the Russian-American novelist and philosopher, states “Ethics is codes of values which guides our choices and actions and determine the purpose and course of our lives.” – (Rand, 2012) Social Ethics & technology Moreover, one of the most challenging ethical conducts that faces the society today are the social ethics, which are the principles that represent experiences of people and different cultures. The social ethics are the focus on what’s considered an appropriate behaviour for people as a whole within a society. Social ethics determines the relationship of people together in a specific community or society; it establishes a harmonious life within its members.
Public relations practitioners are faced with many challenges when it comes to abiding to the code of ethics in public relations, and making sure that they are accountable to the interest of the community, their clients and employers. In most situations these three groups of people have different expectations, values and beliefs, hence realistically it is very difficult to achieve perfect symmetry. As a result, practitioners are faced with many ethical dilemmas, as the area of ethics is a grey area. The definition of ethics explained by Parsons (2008) stated that public relations ethics is the application of knowledge, understanding and reasoning to questions on what is that right or wrong behaviour in professional practice of public relations.

These imperatives allow for a better understanding towards ethics because it addresses the values of people, for example personal imperative acknowledges that us humans use both theoretical and practical views towards our life that allows us to evaluate ourselves and see how we as individuals support our values based on our actions. Having this ability of self awareness is a needed quality in the relationship of humanity and the environment because its by self evaluation do we learn from our mistakes, think deeper of ourselves as individuals and strive to be better than our previous selves.
