A primary reason we fail to do what’s right is that we neglect to see the important ethical aspects of a situation in the first place.  Therefore, training our brains to notice the moral and ethical facets of our environment is critical to ethical reasoning.  When we are aware of the ethical aspects of a situation, we lack objectivity about our own ethical views and rationalize behavior that supports those views.  This class explains the psychology behind why we fail to detect the ethical parts of a decision and what we can do to gain awareness and objectivity to improve ethical reasoning.  During this webinar we will hear Dr. Toby Groves discuss unconscious bias, ethical elements found in any situation, uncovering our own unique ethical blind spots, and ethical thinking patterns.

After attending this session, you will be able to:

  • Explain how reflection and foresight help to examine ethical decision behavior
  • Recognize and identify the hidden ethical components of situations
  • List three reasons we falsely predict we will be ethical in the future
