Reflect on the reading materials, videos, discussions, and written assignment for Module 3. Consider things such as:
· Has your definition of ethics and professional ethics changed based on the first 3 modules?
· What do you consider to be your obligation in helping others? Should it include volunteering your time?
· Is professional distance possible? Healthy? Realistic?
· How does justice reflect in your profession?
Social Responsibility and Client Issues
Module 3’s required readings are from your textbook, Meaningful Work (Chapters 4, 5 and 6), and an Internet search of the concept of Justice. As you read the materials for Module 3, consider the importance of responsibility to others in society. Develop a good definition of social responsibility and what it means to consider the common good. Reading this module should help you determine your obligations in dealing with others around you in your workplace (and partners out of your workplace) and others in your community. Issues of maintaining professional distance should also be considered. Professionals must deal with others in a caring way, but must maintain a professional approach when working with others. Consider the importance of ensuring justice for people and how your job is affected by issues of justice for yourself and others. Some of the major topics to review in this module are listed below:

Given the access to technology, both the types of plagiarism and the amount of plagiarism have increased. Hopefully this video will also be beneficial for your entire academic career. The video is under 4 minutes in length.
Along with the required assigned articles on Critical Thinking, this video will explain some of the basic concepts of critical thinking. Critical thinking allows you to find solutions to a multitude of problems, not simply one problem. This video provides information in how to identify and minimize your own personal biases and flaws. And how to create the skills for evaluating information and evaluating our thought in a disciplined way. It is important to understand what a false dichotomy is, and how to avoid this pitfall of reaoning. Play close attention to the qualities of a critical thinker.
