Courses and Curricula in Professionalism and Ethics

Our courses, curricula and lectures are always customized to the needs and culture of the individual or organization. Our highly experienced instructors and coaches are committed to interdisciplinary rigor and respectful dialogue, honoring the ethical commitments of every profession as we explore communication patterns, codes of conduct, boundaries and roles, virtuous practices and character, moral distress, humanism, responsibility and resilience.  As a team, we have decades of collective experience supporting a variety of organizations, hospitals and clinics, non-profit groups, and the teaching and service-missions of higher education and other helping professions.
