Ethical navigation in coaching psychology – a Socratic [...]
Julie Allan & Ho Law
This article first gives a brief overview of the evolving professional context for coaching psychologists. It then provides an overview from a Socratic dialogue workshop at the SGCP 1st European Coaching Psychology Conference in December 2008. The workshop introduced participants to the basic features of Socratic dialogue and then worked within that frame during the session to discuss ethical dilemmas that they had faced. The approach allowed engagement with particular ethical challenges and enabled the learning to be shared. The Socratic dialogue also gave a frame for wider debate about ethics in coaching psychology.
Keywords: ethics, Socratic dialogue, coaching psychology.
