He also does not want to mistakenly hang someone who is later found innocent, which is why he does not want lengthy trials, because it leaves more time to find someone innocent. He does not want to be viewed by other people or by God as an unfit judge by lengthening trials and making decisions based off of people's feelings not based off of the
Working with psych patients require myself to think more about my actions, how I say things, and how I come across to them. Patients can pick up the slightest discomfort and pick me apart. It is also important to remember to take what they say as a grain of salt. They may say offensive sayings directed towards myself or insult me, but it is something that I don’t let that get into my head and affect me. It is not necessarily the patient saying those thoughts, but the disease itself is what may be fueling the outburst.
Ethics are moral priciples that govern a person's behaviour or the conducting of an activity. In the practice of therapeutic hypnosis, there are many important ethical issues to consider in relation to patient safety and quality of care. Different therapeutic approaches will entail different ethical beliefs, but all behaviour on the part of hypnotherapists is obviously bound by national law and professional guidelines. Increasing administrative duties and legal pressures on therapists unfortunately encourage many to focus primarily on record-keeping and avoiding litigation rather than actual quality of care. Not only must therapists meet minimum legal requirements, they must also focus on how patients can be best served.
Didion stresses that seeking the acceptance of others does not amount to being assertive towards your own morals in life. Didion’s essay ‘On Self-Respect” is told from self-reflection and personal input making it equipped for readers seeking to learn a life lesson. Being unique is s trait that is different for every individual, therefore making the importance of having self-respect unique as well. Self-respect has to be controlled by the individual wishing to obtain it. When this has been done, mistakes can be accepted, confidence can be shown, and self-respect overall springs into having a
This is not always the case but it does happen. That’s why I would use the non- judgmental approach to the harm reduction dilemma. When using the non- judgmental approach I think that it is best to treat each individual with dignity and the upmost respect, regardless of the circumstance. This approach should be used even if what the individual is doing something that you don’t quite agree with. There are a lot of people that question if an intervention should engage or support behaviors that are not socially approved or viewed by some as immortal, to prevent further harm to certain people and I honestly think that it should only because I know
According to Janis (1972), the illusion of invulnerability is the group mentality that a certain decision cannot be wrong. This illusion makes the members of the faction neglect the obvious dangers of their decision due to having excess optimism and confidence in their ability (Janis, 1972). To prevent this symptom, it is important for the group to involve experts who can evaluate the risks of its bad decisions and assist it in making more informed verdicts. 2. According to Janis (1972), the group may be inclined to believe in the morality of their group and make them ignore the moral and ethical consequences of the decisions they make.
By accepting the consequences, they show that they are not acting for their own interests but for society’s. These reasons will prevent anarchy because one has a conscience to determine which laws to follow and which ones do not; therefore, one shows loyalty to the authority of law and also loyalty to one’s
While it is not far fetched to say that people prioritize their interest above the interests of other people, this does not mean that they would be in a constant state of war. People are able of cooperation, and in fact need to cooperate in order to survive. To assume that Hobbes’ state of nature was true would be to assume that the only thing stopping people from killing, lying, and stealing is the fact that the law prohibits it. However, most people carry some sort of morality that stops them from doing that, and they also know that cooperation would get them much further than competition. Even if we assume, however, that Hobbes’ state of nature is true, it still would not justify obeying a tyrannical government.
If helping a person would prevent your own self-interest, this would seem to make it morally permissible for a person to perform harm to others in situations where their self-interest would benefit from the action. But, an egoistic must act with one’s own eternal self-interest, therefore they are not just individuals who believe that they should always do what they like when they like because acting in accordance with this would not necessarily benefit the person in the long term. When we say that a person should do something, we are also implying is that they are capable of doing the action, but we cannot expect people to do things that they cannot do. Ethical egoism comes in two forms and they are act-egoism and rule-egoism. Act-egoism is the
This theory state that people should make decisions because of who they are and not because some rules or law that guides them. If people make decisions based merely on anticipation of only good consequences there would not be new discovery. Discoveries are the unknown and in the unknown you cannot anticipate the consequences of what we do not know so in other words there would be no risk taking. Virtue ethics theory allows one to make decisions by evaluating a situation, weighing circumstances and coming to conclusion on the best possible result. It is not dependent on the greatest outcome because not all right decisions leads to the greatest utility.
