Ethics of Gender

This course will explore how gender affects therapeutic decisions. Participants will learn to define and utilize philosophical frameworks including the ethics of care, the human development approach, narrative ethics, and existentialist ethics. Participants will analyze how a person’s gender affects the ethical demands of the therapist. The course will enable participants to identify approaches to ethics that are gender neutral, gender inclusive, and gender specific. Through case studies and challenging discussion, participants will evaluate their own responses to problems arising from or related to gender and to people of all genders.
