Topic: Mental Health—Involuntary commitment
This assignment requires you to begin to incorporate pieces of the Ethics Toolbox (moral theories and ethical principles) in your analysis to articulate different ways to think about the case.
Situation of ethical conflict (1/2 page)
Briefly, identify the topic you chose for this assignment and explain why the topic meets the definition of a situation of ethical conflict. (The Oxford English Dictionary defines an ethical conflict as “a situation in which a person must choose between two courses of action of (apparent) equal moral importance so that the choice necessarily entails the transgression of an important moral principle.” In other words, each of the two actions is problematic and may lead to undesirable outcomes.)
Concisely describe some undesirable outcomes with both actions to illustrate why your topic meets the definition of ethical conflict.
Stakeholders (1 page)
Identify the stakeholders. (The Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines a stakeholder as “one who is involved in or affected by a course of action.”)
Discuss possible values, beliefs, and interests that may influence the perceptions of the stakeholders about the ethical conflict. For example, depending on your topic, factors that may influence how a stakeholder views the situation may include religion, culture, professional identity, institutional values, and societal norms or beliefs.
Critical analysis (includes alternative ways of thinking about the issue) (3 pages)
This is the most substantive section of the assignment. Analyze the situation of ethical conflict identified in the first section using moral theories and ethical principles relevant to your topic. Organize this section using these headings:
Moral theories (consequentialist, deontology, virtue ethics, rights theory)
Ethical principles (autonomy, beneficence, nonmaleficence, justice)
You are expected to effectively utilize all of the moral theories and ethical principles in a well-developed and scholarly analysis of the situation of ethical conflict that illustrates how the elements of the Ethics Toolbox provide guidance in the situation.
Conclusion (1/2 page)
Begin this section by unequivocally stating the ethically correct action in one sentence.
Then, summarize the moral theories and ethical principles that were most persuasive to you in arriving at the ethically correct action for your topic (e.g., why they made the strongest case for whether the practice is ethical or not ethical).
Do not re-state the entire case you made in the analysis section.
