The writer relates the ethical dilemma that a volunteer in a local youth center was not a qualified counselor, yet was presenting herself as such to children and disclosing their very personal information for her entertainment. The paper discusses the personal values which were in conflict here and examines the outcome of this behavior. The writer relates two things she would have done differently as a manager and concludes that it is essential that ethics be both maintained and enforced so as to ensure proper behavior.

The Ethical Experience
An Analysis of the Dilemma
The Ethical Conclusion

From the Paper:

"The making of decisions within an ethical framework has three essential components according to the EAI, those of awareness, articulation, and application. These are founded upon the beliefs which an individual holds intrinsically, their core being the term utilized by the EAI. For an individual to be committed to ethics they must first understand that which is proper and furthermore have the capacity to compare this against alternatives. Opinions are formed based upon this with the morally correct actions being chosen, and should there not be a solid answer it is important for all individuals to develop a code of ethics upon which to ground decisions."
