An Introduction to Bereavement Sector Ethics

This webinar will provide an overview and introduction to ethics as they relate to bereavement sector professionals.  This is the first part of a series of presentations specifically developed for the OACFP and Ontario bereavement professionals and will be part of our new Creating a Climate of Ethical Choices in the Bereavement Profession micro-certification credential.

About this Session:

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.

This webinar is sponsored and supported by the BAO and will be offered free of charge to all those who work in the bereavement sector.
