How should you live your life? Our actions and choices dramatically affect our thoughts and feelings about ourselves and the world around us. Few things promote good mental health better than a clear conscience and the peace of mind that come from knowing you’ve done the right thing. But, in our ever more complicated world, what are the right choices? How can we make decisions that are at the same time good for us, good for our community—and just plain good?

This book, written by an esteemed psychologist and ethicist, helps you answer these questions and develop a sound system for making the right choices in each situation. First, the book offers a clear, easy-to-understand survey of the major traditions in ethics and their approaches to problem solving. Then it explains an innovative, five-step process you can use to make sound, ethical choices. The RRICC system works by helping you examine situations according to five ethical principles: responsibility, respect, integrity, competence, and concern. By following the lucid, step-by-step exercises that introduce the system, you will learn and practice invaluable decision-making skills—simple, reliable techniques you can use at any time, in any place to make sure you always do the right thing.
