Abstract

Ethical decision making is a cognitive skill requiring education in ethical principles and an understanding of specific ethical issues. It is also a psychodynamic process involving personalities, values, opinions, and perceptions. This article proposes the use of case studies and role-playing techniques in teaching ethics in occupational therapy to supplement conventional methods of presenting ethical theories and principles. These two approaches invite students to discuss and analyze crucial issues in occupational therapy from a variety of viewpoints. Methodology of developing case studies and role-playing exercises are discussed. The techniques are evaluated and their application to the teaching of ethics is examined.
