Beyond the Code: Ethics in The Real World

April 11 | 2–3:50 p.m. ET | 2 CPEs | FOS: BETH

This innovative and interactive presentation taps the fields of neuroscience, psychology and even biology to understand the point where science, emotion and critical thinking interact. Instead of critiquing how our minds are supposed to work, we will delve inside the fascinating world of how our minds actually work when we face difficult dilemmas with competing goals. The audience will experience startling, interactive experiments that reveal how we miss the obvious and how our minds conjure up false perceptions out of thin air. We will review why outdated ethical models centered around rule-based codes have failed and what research indicates does improve individual and organizational ethical reasoning.

This session includes powerful visuals of brain activity associated with cognitive patterns of ethical reasoning.

Major subjects:

•    Why model codes of ethics fail
•    The science behind organizations' “ethical DNA”
•    Understanding the psychology behind “tone at the top” 
•    The interaction between critical thinking and ethics
•    Breaking myths about motivation related to decision-making
•    Ethical decision-making under pressure
•    Are ethics and morals "fixed” or can we learn to improve

Moderator: Ambre Witte, MSW, LSW, CEO, Life and Love Counseling, LLC
