Ethical Discernment and Decision-Making – A Case Report from the perspective of a Workplace Chaplain
This is a case report about the ethical discernment and decision from the perspective of a Workplace Chaplain -making in the case of Susan, a fictitious name given to a Christian lady for whom the author is her chaplain. She was proposing a divorce. The dilemma was that she knew this would be against the bible teaching and the will of God. The decision would ruin her family. However, she had been considering it painfully and persistently for over a year. Recently she consulted a non-Christian lawyer ready to proceed with the divorce action. She needed discernment and advice from her chaplain.
This case report will first illustrate how the ethical dilemma case could have been handled by two prevailing approaches in ethical discernment and decision-making in the workplace context, namely the Ignatius of Loyola’s Seeking God’s Will Discernment and the Wesleyan Quadrilateral Discernment. Then, the case report will detail how the chaplain handled the case with the clinical-based Chaplaincy Intervention approach through the “Ministry of Presence.” In summary, the author will summarize the case experience in hindsight.
