Beliefs Values and Morals Application
As you prepare for advanced academic studies as well as your future career, it is important to understand the philosophical and theoretical foundations of your beliefs, as these will influence your actions and, to some degree, shape the relationships that you have with others in your field (clients as well as colleagues). Be sure to incorporate your ideas of what defines a belief, a moral, and a value, as they are quite different. Try to use definitions from scholarly sources, not ones from the dictionary or from Wikipedia, if possible. Also, please focus your responses in terms of the career you will be entering (or are already in).
