What or who has influenced your moral development and/or philosophies in life?
Reflect on your Ethics, Values and Beliefs, and consider the following questions:
1. Why do you think it is important that you learn about ethics in relation to working within your professions and from other professionals disciplines?
2. What or who has influenced your moral development and/or philosophies in life?
3. Can you identify those who hold different moral views from your own? Who are these people and
what relationship do you have with them? It may help to think about figures in public life who
take particular stances on social issues – these often become political.
4. Do your values change depending on the situation? Think of a scenario from your life or work
when you thought your value position was firm but it changed when confronted by a situation.
5. What ‘value messages’ govern your life now? How have these messages changed over time?
