Very often “ethics” is seen as an add-on to the vocational rehabilitation process. There is a focus on what the VR professional does and ethics seems to be an afterthought. However, ethics should be the center of all the individual does in carrying out services to his/her clients. This is the first of three modules on ethical conduct. In this section, there is an examination of the person’s well-being and those factors influence unethical behaviour. The module will also examine the foundations of ethical behaviour which includes defining professional ethics and outlining a history of thinking in this area.
