Ethical decision making models mostly emphasize the importance of cognitive-logical aspects of our judgements. However when this complex activity is conceptualized in terms of reasoning alone, it rather provides a reductionist perspective.
As an alternative Macneill (2010) reminds us the need of including emotions as a useful recource as well as our sensitivity which could give us clues. There are also much findings about spesific character qualities of the psychologist which could lead them often to ethically difficult situations. In this presentation these issues will be elaborated and discussed with the participants.
