Abstract

Identifying courses of action warns mental health professionals not to be caught in false dilemmas where only polar options are available. This chapter suggests using the “rule of three” to ensure that least three courses of action are ascertained. Next, it recommends considering the consequences of each possible course of action. To evaluate each of the alternatives, professionals should consider the moral values involved and responsibilities to multiple stakeholders. Based on the moral development of the students involved, professionals should involve them in collaborative decision-making and treat students as partners in the ethical process.

Keywords: collaborative decision-making, ethical decision-making, ethics, false dilemma, moral development, moral values, stakeholders
