"The aspects of the book related to the philosophy of science and cognitive science (inductive and deductive reasoning, biases, and heuristics) are distilled in reasonable and useful ways. I recommend this book to those addiction professionals who want to create their own framework for ethical decision making." --PsycCRITIQUES Ethical decision-making is required in many of the difficult situations faced by addiction professionals. In this guide, Michael Taleff describes how to integrate critical thinking with ethical decision-making.

The book then shows readers how to apply new models of ethical thinking to practice. Key features: Presents an ethical self-exam to encourage critical thinking about one's own decision-making method Introduces a variety of models such as the social contract theory, existentialist theory, and ethical egoism Discusses how biases, emotional reactions, and fallacies can weaken ethical decision-making Presents an introductory "Ethics Judgment Kit," a simple, practical decision-making procedure for students This book demonstrates how critical thinking skills can impact and improve the process of ethical decision-making.
