Discussion: Eight-Step Model
After reading Chapter 17 in the text, discuss the eight-step ethical decision-making model proposed by the authors. List the steps with a brief summary of each step.
Comment on the value or lack of value you perceive in this model. Explain your understanding of supported and unsupported models used in making important decisions in ethics and life. (For example, The eight-step model is a supported model because it incorporates the APA Code of Ethics design. The restorative justice model may be considered an alternative ethical decision-making model for bringing peace to opposing parties in a conflict. Forms of dogmatic or authoritarian parenting approaches may be considered an unsupported form of resolving conflicts in a family.)
Would a supported or unsupported model best describe your current approach to ethical decision-making? Explain your reasoning.
