Ethical Codes

….ethical codes cannot do our questioning, thinking, feeling, and responding for us.  Such codes can never be a substitute for the active process by which the individual struggles with the sometimes bewildering, always unique constellation of questions, responsibilities, contexts, and competing demands of helping another person…”  Pope & Vasquez, 1998
