Beziehungsethik In Den Helfenden Berufen
Traditional ethical codes for therapists typically stress responsibility for the well-being of the client. However, in a world of plural cultures, criteria of well-being may conflict; what is »good« for one is not for another. Further, a therapist‘s ethical sensibility may conflict with the client‘s. In this offering, I trace all ethical orientations to relational process. It follows that our major ethical commitment should be addressed to relational well-being, that is, to the source of all ethics. As I illustrate, a relational ethic will invite alternative therapeutic practices to the traditional focus on client well-being.
