A depth psychology of ethics includes being accountable for complicated emotional reactions. The unconscious is always a factor in the helping professions. For example, counter-transference can provide a sense of the inner worlds of clients and the reactions they generate in relationships.
Applied ethics includes managing personal limitations. Maintaining a high level of integrity is crucial to securing trust and protecting the bond needed to be of help.
The course format is storytelling with discussion. Familiar tales will be used to illustrate key principles. We will examine The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe to discuss scenes that exemplify specific ethical challenges.
