Education for a Humane Society

Contributors: Samantha Meich Pank, Constine Cox, Jon Nixon, Thomas Ks Wong, Wendy Bionold, Professor David Weir, Bob Adamson,

Book Description

This book is addressed to all those with an interest in the ethical dimension of professional development. Contributors are drawn from a variety of occupational fields (academic practice, healthcare, occupational therapy, legal, military, business, research, teaching, higher education, and civil engineering), institutional contexts, and geographical regions. However, they are united in their concern for inter-professional ways of working and for developing an ethical response to the changing institutional contexts within which they operate. Practitioners, trainers and managers will find this book both useful and thought-provoking, while scholars with a particular interest in professional ethics will find it informative and insightful.
