Ethics and Boundaries Seminar – Spring 2012
WHAT: For every family member and paid worker, as well as those who have indirect roles in the lives of elders, children and adults with developmental and other disabilities, there are many moments of decision that effect the future of a person receiving support.
- When there are many stakeholders, who influences your decisions?
- When there is less money, what compromises do you make?
- When time is limited, how do you gather the information needed to make ethical decisions?
- When a person does not have ease of communication, how do you represent her/his point of view?
- When the ethical question is, what’s the right thing to do, from whose point of view do you make your decision?
- What is you ethical legacy in relation to each person you support?
- What are the responsibilities and limitations of support relationships?
- When are the decisions we make for his/her own good and in their best interests detrimental?
We have created these sessions as opportunities for conversation about both protecting people’s safety and advocating for meaningful community participation that includes a variety of relationships.
