Creating a Climate of Ethical Choices in the Bereavement Profession - Session 1

An Introduction to Bereavement Sector Ethics 

Session Overview:

The ancient Greeks called ethics “the practical philosophy” because of its immediate relevance in our everyday lives. In this introductory workshop we will discuss why it is important to talk about ethics, where our notions of right and wrong come from, and how we develop greater moral understanding, with a focus on the unique nature of the bereavement professional.
