Description
This intermediate workshop enables participants to identify situations in which psychologists may become morally disengaged from their base of ethics rules and ethical principles. Adding a mix of values from other cultures complicates the decision making substantially. Identifying such issues is essential to maintaining oneself as an ethical psychologist and assessing motivations in resolving ethical dilemmas. Bandura’s social cognitive theory of moral disengagement is used to examine how internal moral control can be disengaged in everyday situations. Strategies for maintaining ethical engagements are presented.
Learning Objectives
1. Describe the mechanisms of moral disengagement affecting psychologists.
2. Describe strategies for maintaining moral engagement – short and long term.
3. Demonstrate through examples how to resolve ethical dilemmas and maintain moral engagement when working across cultural lines.
4. Summarize the positions of the multicultural participants in maintaining engagement within moral principles (virtue).
