I enjoy reading your post; you provided sound knowledge of the ACA and NAADAC Code of Ethics. “The NAADAC Code of Ethics was written to govern the conduct of its member and it is the accepted standard of conduct for addiction professionals certified by the National Certification Commission.” Therefore, it is the responsibility of the addiction professional to safeguard the integrity of the counseling relationship and to ensure that the client is provided with services that are most beneficial. In all areas of function, the addiction professional is likely to encounter individuals who are vulnerable and exploitable. In such relationships he/she seeks to nurture and support the development of a relationship of equals rather than to take unfair
Every day we as citizens of this country make decisions either consciously or unconsciously on how we go about our daily lives. We make all of our decisions based on our own personal moral behavior and what we believe in. Moral rules are defined in the book as things along the lines of people should not drink in excess or children should come before self (pg. 26). One’s moral behavior is primarily based on how they were brought up and what they were raised to believe. To test ones moral behavior ask yourself whether you perceive stealing, whether it be a candy bar from a gas station or stealing someone’s purse as wrong or right. Whatever the answer you just picked, you picked it because of your very own personal moral behavior.
Tom Watson was a statesmen from Georgia who became a leading racist, anti Catholic,and anti Semite. He used his journalism to express his radical views, which sometimes led to violence. He also had a weekly paper, that was circulated repetitively. He was part of the US senate from 1920 until he died in 1922. Although, he changed his support of blacks to support white supremacy, he was always an isolationist. Tom Watson went against the black poor because the Populist Party failed, and he found a way to make money out of saying what people wanted to hear.
He states that there is no easy and quick answer to his questions that it is something that must be observed and looked at with time and through time. He states that with the material given on the black code there is little to work with. He then talks about an argument presented by Du Bois about reconstruction and its benefits and how it is difficult say that the laws were kind of a personification of defiance to the north. Browning then states how it is equally difficult to agree that the code was an attempt to bring some sort of order of social and economic chaos. “White civilization by refusing to recognize the equal political rights of the blacks, and an understanding from the beginning that the negro should be made to know his place in social and economic order..” (472-473). I agree with browning, it is impossible for change to happen if you do not let it happen. In this case it was impossible for blacks to acquire rights when whites did not permit such
Chris McCandless, whose story is analyzed in Into the Wild, by Jon Krakauer, is a young adult who decides to leave his known habits and material belongings behind and live a completely self-sufficient life in the wilderness, a choice which ultimately leads to his death. In doing that, he also forfeits his family and friends. With that in mind, a question can be posed regarding the ethics of said behavior. As a childless, single and financially independent man, Chris McCandless has absolute ownership of his body and thus his decision to continue doing a sport that he knows can kill him is ethically defensible.
The NAEYC Code of Ethical Conduct offers protocols for an educators’ responsible actions, as well as offering support involving the ethical predicaments that are experienced in an early childhood education setting. (Gordon & Browne, Code of Ethical Conduct: Preamble, 2005). The Code of Ethical Conduct also addresses a range of professional relations with children, families, colleagues, and the community, as well as introducing the leading responsibilities for each relation; followed by ideals that mirror commendable professional methods, as well as principles that describe methods that are mandatory, illicit, or allowable. (Gordon & Browne, Code
What factors in the WorldCom case support the conclusion that CEO Bernie Ebbers Knew about the financial statement fraud? What factors support his defense that he did not know about the fraud?
1. I think what needs to be the focus on is Bernie Ebbers ambitions and greed to be one of the world’s most powerful individuals in the communication industry was ultimately his downfall. Ebber ability to falsely represent a transformational leadership style and his ability to persuade others to follow him was his strength. His country boy cowboy style and appealing personality made a bigger than life character. He was deemed someone that can do no wrong, in short, he was idealized by those who knew him. Ebber projected a very powerful persuasiveness. (Kark, hamir,and Chen (2003). Bass 1995 and Avolio and Bass 2000 study on transformational leadership is a perfect example. Ebber possessed the traits associated with transformational leadership, individualized consideration, intellectual stimulation, idealized influence, and inspirational motivation.
There is a controversy over whether Jay Gatsby is a good man with pure intentions or a corrupted man with evil intentions. Jay Gatsby uses all his wealth only for pure intentions.

This article on ethics was really interesting and a dilemma that is prevalent within criminal justice. In the article Dr. Steven Davis recognized that students cheating in high school increased by 20% in the 1940 to 75% today. Davis stated, "If students lack ethics in high school and college, then there should be little surprise that they lack ethics in their careers. (2008)." This observation by Davis holds some value, because individuals that is willing to cheat to get ahead, definitely has no problem crossing ethical lines, because in their mind the wrong is acceptable, just as it was when they cheated.
While reading the book, I evaluated the ethical conduct of the relevant characters. I personally felt that the conduct of Gerald M. Stern was ethical. He always put his client’s needs first while making
According to the website, the Nassm site states that sports agent has to have, “Respect. Fairness, and Courtesy. The sport manager should treat colleagues with respect, courtesy, fairness, and good faith.” I believe that’s it’s true because i wouldn’t think i would want to be treated ugly.
Conrad Black was born into a life of privilege in Montreal in 1944. Having been brought up in a wealthy family, Black was able to acquire many newspaper publishers after graduation. Conrad black known for his outspokenness and often spoke poorly about journalists, describing them as “ignorant, lazy, opinionated, intellectually dishonest and inadequately supervised hacks”. One could describe Black to be an egotistic, arrogant, impeccably mannered and self-righteous individual who would immediately terminate an editor who did not agree with his policies. Black also had a history of unethical acts as he was expelled from the most prestigious boys’ school, UCC, for selling exam papers.
The American corporate system has long faced ethical concerns amongst the citizens of the United States. Often, corporate greed undermines morality and often furthers an agenda that puts profit ahead of people. A prime historical example of this case in ethical obligations is the case of the Enron Scandal of 2001. The CEOs of this Scandal hid millions of dollars of debt from their balance sheets and were able to extort money from shareholders based on surging stock prices, fueled solely on false pretenses propagated by the CEO (citation). This is a modern example of an ethical lapse by a corporate model catering to the public. This same notion of moral wrong-doing is equivalent to the movies Scarface and Double Indemnity. This paper will discuss
The descriptive model of ethical decision making comprises of the way people typically make ethical decisions (Copper, 2012). Every ethical decision is based on the social and cultural context in which it occurs, this is inclusive of the ethical decision to become whistle blowers, as seen in the Dryburgh case study on which this paper is grounded. This paper is focused on demonstrating proper case analysis using Cooper’s ethical decision-making model on the Dryburgh Case Study, the case of Corcoran State Prison.
