Great Resource Jan 28, 2008
Dr. Dave Hellmich has compiled this practical resource using real-life ethical problem-solving as its basis. It's not filled with theoretical mumbo-jumbo, but makes good common sense that anyone can understand and relate to, which facilitates discussion and application. I highly recommend it.
