Ethics, professional boundaries, and practitioners

Ethical behavior refers to the choices you make when no one else is looking, whether at home, in public, or in the practice setting. Unfortunately, there is no black-and-white way to define what behavior is considered ethical or unethical. Ethical behavior hinges on multiple factors, including context, culture, professional standards, moral guidelines, family backgrounds and values, and religious beliefs. By nature, ethics are subjective: What may appear ethical to you may not be considered ethical to someone else.
