About InnerEthics®

Most of us want to do the right thing at the right time. The more we know ourselves, the more conscious choice we have to provide benefit and do less harm to clients.

Inner Ethics® provides a reflective, compassionate, and transpersonal approach to being in “right relationship” with ourselves, our clients, and in community with others.

InnerEthics® is an inner, complementary approach to ethics education, to traditional, external codes, rules, laws and standards, to help us guide our ethical behavior.

InnerEthics® is a relational ethics model that addresses two essential aspects of ethical discernment and behavior that are generally missing in traditional ethics education.

  1. Relational Ethics: Reflecting compassionately about our own motivations when we are in a responsible role is fundamental to ethical professional practice.
     
  2. The Differences in Working with Clients in Extra-Ordinary States of Consciousness: InnerEthics® shows how to meet the increased and unique needs of clients in these profound states, so that they have a safe and corrective experience.

InnerEthics® helps us to more ethically navigate our care of clients who are in profound, extra-ordinary states of consciousness, such as psychedelic-assisted therapy, deep grief, trauma, and dying.

InnerEthics® is now being taught to students and professionals who will be using this self-reflection method personally. For educators who want to learn to present this model, a course is in development. Contact Kylea Taylor for further information.

InnerEthics® is a set of concepts, languaging, and tools that help us to know and support ourselves in right relationship. InnerEthics® tools are practical and easy to remember and use when they are needed. These tools help professionals identify their motivations and relational dynamics (such as countertransference or dual relationship) or balance essential elements (such as safety vs. empowerment) in the therapeutic container.

InnerEthics® is professional development that also helps us in our ordinary lives with our personal relationships. InnerEthics® is useful, not only to professionals, but to all of us who find ourselves in the role of “Responsible Party” with a friend or loved one who needs their focused, non-reciprocated caring.
