The course provides students with an appreciation of how their values influence their decisions and actions in practice. It provides an overview of ethical theories, ethico-legal principles and relevant legislation in practice. Attention is given to understanding ethics as a capacity to act for the rights and well-being of people, animals and the ecosystem, where power inequalities can compound pre-existing inequalities and issues. It provides students with tools and skills for resolving ethical dilemmas and identifies the importance of self-care in complex human services practice settings.
