Libertarianism would suggest that, since you are unable to know for certain what the patient’s wishes are regarding the sharing of information, you should air on the side of caution and completely avoid sharing anything with their family. By doing this, you aren’t infringing on the patient’s right to liberty. If the patient felt that their past medical history was of importance and worth sharing, it is safe to assume that they would have done so. Based on this assumption, it is ethical to withhold any and all medical history that does not relate to their current medical
Since no person including the therapists/clinician are not clear/free of bias, it best for a social worker to be careful not to rely on stereotypes in a well-meaning attempt to be culturally sensitive. Rather she/he need to educate herself/himself about the experiences of individuals from diverse backgrounds. To become aware of the ways in which their own history, beliefs, values, and experiences have shaped them, and to proactively invite conversation about cultural differences in Cognitive Therapy. It is also best to keep in mind that even if people are from the same cultural, it does not mean their beliefs and values etc., would be identical from their family or culture. Social workers are face with complex situation always and its best to educated ourselves to the best of our abilities to help assist our clients.
We do this because our goal is that they would be born again. Sexual preference as both Preston Sprinkle and Dr. Albert Mohler point out do not define a person’s whole life. We would never define a heterosexual person by their sexual preference or by their sins. We shouldn’t do that to the homsexual community either. So we need to begin with a healthy respect towards others.
In addition, the purpose of punishing offenders is to ensure they will not commit any crimes in future. However, putting all kind of criminals in a prison may not accomplish the goal, but boost the possibility that prisoners will come under the negative peer pressure. Furthermore, many offenders find it difficult to rehabilitate into the society because of their prison records. Thus, social training is believed to benefit them better as they will absorb conventions and codes of conduct after the activities.
Besides, stoics are more “emotionless”. Specifically, once one stoics mentions that when he saw the death of a baby, he will not feel sad or depressed since he thinks people need to follow the natural tendency and the death of that baby is none of his business since he has no relationship with that baby. In this case, we could easily deduce that Stoics tries to persuade its followers to be more restrained. In other words, thanks to their “restrained temperament”, they appear more introverted. Therefore, they will definitely not be allowed and not readily to ask passengers such questions in
Modern society uses morals to fuel the decisions of daily life. These moral standards set society apart from the uncivilized creatures of the past. Yet the people of the modern day think if a moral does not directly “hurt” another individual, it’s not imperative for them to fallow. Due to this lack of compliance schools set up honor codes, protecting individuals who are targets of these heinous acts, and punishing the offenders. Without an honor code in place, a school cannot take justice for the individuals at fault.
If, in cases such as the ones aforementioned, people are committed to carrying out acts which maximises utility, then no one will be able to trust that doctors won't use the organs of one patient to benefit others and that promise-makers will keep their promises. On a more general note, if everyone believed that lying, promise-breaking, cheating and violating the law were morally permissible whenever doing so would lead to good results, then no-one could trust other people to obey these rules. Consequently, society would turn into chaos, where people's behaviour would lack the level of predictability and consistency required to sustain trust and social stability. Clearly, this 'shows how a rule-consequentialist could justify a rule against telling lies' (Benn, 1998) and how the social impact of a rule-based morality is a fundamental virtue of rule-utilitarianism. Being able to trust people is extremely important to our well-being and by committing to an act-utilitarian case by case evaluation method, people become less reliable and trustworthy.
Knowing about personal health risks, making changes to lessen them, and sticking with these changes are important for maintaining optimal health. In the end, each individual is responsible for their own actions, and becoming educated about their risks will help them to make better choices. The audience for this persuasive essay will include both employers and employees. The first challenge in reaching this audience could be potential privacy concerns. Employers should not have access to health records of their employees that is not work related, and some may worry that their medical information will be shared.
Given that the parent has the complete right to decide for their newborns (since newborns are not capable of making the decision for themselves), should that individual be allowed to not vaccinate their newborns? Mill would most likely respond that the individual is free to not vaccinate their child unless it harms other people. Before we ultimately discern Mill’s position on whether society has authority over the individual’s decision in this case of vaccination, we must explain why there are anti-vaccination groups prevalent in societies today. The main issue anti-vaccination groups have with vaccines is that anti-vaccination groups believe that the substance called thimerosal, which is found in trace amounts, contributes to the development
I learned difference is not just ok but vital to life. If everyone was the same no new medicines would be created, buildings would be non-existent, and new species would never be discovered. My personal cultural identity stems from this early realization of difference and the fact it is more helpful than harmful. When it comes to others worldviews I don’t shun them just because they are different than mine but I embrace them. I make sure that they feel not just accepted but understood.
For Lindsey she needs psychological help and realization of why she steals, because she comes from a high income household she does not steal for means of survival. Her father needs to be actively and positive involvement in her restorative justice process in order for it to be completely successful. Lindsey needs to be educated on her crimes and what are the possibilities if she doesn’t go down that route. Since Lindsey has a passion she needs to embraced it into her program and the program needs to included possible connections to he passion in order to created a stake of conformity. Restorative justice programs will help Lindsey not become a Chronic
This was portrayed in the documentary by one of the police officers who said you might not achieve a good or desired result sometimes but a good result might just be that you have successfully disrupted the situation. Like in most of the cases the girls went back home. Their parents were not persecuted but they became aware that they are being watched by the authorities. Social worker is a relationship-based profession nevertheless it is their moral duty to challenge injustice in the society. I learnt in today’s session that cultural diversity can create ethical dilemmas for social works and in cases there would be no direct answers.
The safety of the employees and clients is the number one protocol. Some of the ethical dilemmas include discrimination, racism and deception just to name a few. Some clinical workers may have to break the ethical code of conduct by falsifying information, withholding information, give misleading information just to gain important information needed from their client. Not only is the social workers ethical code of conduct an issue but it also conflicts with the law, workplace regulation and polices hindering the full capability of the social worker duty to keep clients information confidential. This includes sharing client’s information with co- workers or to those outside of the workplace.
Making sure a person is safe should be everyone 's number one priority. Even though people go to therapists because they want someone to talk to who won 't judge them or divulge their secrets, divulging information about harming another person does not fall under that category. I agree that it can be very difficult for a therapist to decide when a patient actually intends on following through with the death threats or if the patient is just trying to vent. However, if he or she is a good therapist, then he or she should know their patient well enough to decide whether they are being serious. Not only that, but when a patient begins therapy, their therapist is required to tell them all the things that if they say, the therapist is required by law to tell the police.
