Summary:   Ethical dilemmas are those moments that pit the things we value against each other. Identifying those values – and their worth – is at the heart of working through these challenges, but each of us does it in a slightly different way. In this training we’ll discuss values, ethical approaches, and workshop how those things lead to our individual behaviors. We all can be a little more mindful of the approaches we take and the implications that each has on what we choose to do
