What happens when we dare to enter the realm of the dilemma? What and who influences us at such times and to what ends? The notion of future proofing our emotional wellbeing from the ravaging effects of ill-resolved dilemmas seems to suggest there is merit in questioning the notion of ‘equally undesirable alternatives’ before they are brought to fruition. In this case study, the journey of a priest is captured through a three phase development programme designed to ‘out’ inward ways of operating in the world of value-determine alternatives so that critical reflection, adaptation and renewal can take place.
In this session you will glimpse aspects of a three part approach which paved the way to a scenario which previously did not make dilemma status as it was not considered an option. How to shift deductive decision making onto the creation and resolution of ethical dilemmas is reviewed creating further complexity yet opportunity for change.
