Event description

Description

I present an integrated ethical framework that covers the different levels of ethical tasks inherent in clinical work. First, I give an overview of the ethical framework and its component notion of human dignity. Second I analyse in depth the concept of dignity and its relationship to normative theories and ethical concepts that are particularly relevant for practitioners. Third, I explore the capacity of the conceptions of human dignity and vulnerable agency to integrate principles typically contained in ethical codes and practice, such as beneficence, autonomy, and justice. Fourth, I discuss how conflict between ethical codes or duties of station adhered to by practitioners can be effectively addressed in light of the model of dignity and agency outlined earlier. Fifth, I explain how individuals' specific ethical judgments and actions should proceed in light of the framework model.
