Beyond the Code: Ethics in The Real World
April 11 | 1–2:50 p.m. CT | 2 CPEs | FOS: BETH
This innovative and interactive presentation taps the fields of neuroscience, psychology and even biology to understand the point where science, emotion and critical thinking interact. Instead of critiquing how our minds are supposed to work, we will delve inside the fascinating world of how our minds actually work when we face difficult dilemmas with competing goals. The audience will experience startling, interactive experiments that reveal how we miss the obvious and how our minds conjure up false perceptions out of thin air. We will review why outdated ethical models centered around rule-based codes have failed and what research indicates does improve individual and organizational ethical reasoning.
This session offers a powerful, live EEG demonstration (visual representation of brain activity) allowing attendees to witness the cognitive patterns associated with ethical reasoning.
