Ross may give us guidelines on what is right and wrong, with these prima facie duties, but in these dilemma-like situations, it is not always entirely clear as to what action we must choose. How are we supposed to know which prima facie obligation is the strongest in a given case? As mentioned before, all Ross has for us, in terms of an answer, is intuition. He believes that just by sincerely contemplating the situation, we can know which duty is our absolute. While I don’t disagree with Ross—I do understand this idea, and have been in situations like this, where only intuition will answer my predicament—this does not help, much, in terms of determining a definite moral code.
In simple words, a moral theory is an effort at outlining what an individual ought to do in accord to an intrinsic good. It can take many aspects, each with it’s own strength and weaknesses, and each appealing in it’s own way. In this paper I will focus on two normative ethical theories, consequentialism and deontology. I will respectively describe each one, and will then proceed to list their corresponding benefits and shortcomings. I will conclude by siding with consequentialism for various reasons that I will try my best to explain.
Empathic solidarity applies to me because I am a very empathetic person. Although Sarah Banks believes that empathy on its own is not enough, that it needs to lead to the development of a sense of solidarity and commitment to collective action for social change. she went further and said that empathic solidarity require abilities of critical analysis and a hopeful attitude which involves viewing the bigger picture, questioning received ideas and seeing the possibility for another kind of world. This is where I need more interpersonal skills because there are more to the skills I thought I already had”. (Banks, S. 2012 p.
Before I deliver what I have to say and do, I would make sure it is for the benefit of my patients and families. It does not mean that I do the job alone but it is a collaborative team effort between me and team members and other disciplinary teams. I may be basing my decisions from the actual data but I do take into consideration the inputs and of others too. I see to it that we have the same understanding with common goal of protecting the safety of our clients. Lastly, I respect the feelings of others regardless we have disagreements on some matters.
Huang (2001) said that these codes are crucial for public relations to be granted a status as a bona-fide profession. The codes strive to give guidance to public relation practitioners in order to help them to act in a practical and professional manner. However even though these codes are fashioned to satisfy universal conditions and principles (Kruckeberg, 1993), many scholars like (Parkinson, 2001; Wright, 1993) voiced out their opinion that the codes fall short of the ideas promoted in the codes, or even being internally conflicting. Many other practitioners have also voiced their opinion that the code of ethics is too vague to be useful, and that it does not give enough specifications (Bowen,
I feel as though I need to work on trusting others more, and following-up with situations. It is very difficult for me to trust people. Although, it could be considered a good/bad thing based on the situation, I want to be able to open-up to others more, and it is something that I am working on. There are also a lot of times where I refuse to ask for help because I think I have the situation under control. When in reality I need some sort of extra help.
The therapeutic alliance is partnerships where both therapist and client are agree on shared goals and work together on tasks which conceivably will produce a positive result. This alliance is built on acceptance, empathy and trust. Other than completing education and professional training, personal characteristics also serve as an essential part to work with client. I believe that some of my personal characteristics are assisting me while some other parts of my personal characteristics also obstruct my ability to work effectively with client in a therapeutic relationship. Self-Awareness - I am aware of my own weaknesses and values so that I will not react defensively to what a client had disclosed to me.
What it means to have self-awareness is to know about yourself. You know about some of your strengths and weaknesses, your motives, feelings, and desires. I feel like this is one of my best skills because I know what areas that I need improvement on and I work hard to improve upon them. Whether it may be practicing it on a daily basis or asking some companions for help.
