Very often “being ethical” is solely defined as abiding by a Code of Ethics. However, being ethical should go beyond following rules and regulations. Ethics is also a matter of character. This module looks beyond the code of ethics and shows how ethical actions enhance the vocational rehabilitation process. The most recent neurobiological research demonstrates that by being ethical the individual supports the vocational rehabilitation process and enhances the client’s chances for success.

- Explain the neurobiological origin of motivation
