About the Course:
A professional will is a plan for what happens if we die suddenly or become incapacitated without warning. It helps those whom we designate to respond promptly and effectively to our clients’ needs and to the unfinished business of our practice. It gives others the basic information and guidance that can be so hard to come by at a time of shock and mourning. The first article outlines a set of steps to help you create your own professional will so that it fits your needs, resources, setting, and practice.
In addition, the second article provides some steps helpful in thinking through how to respond to an ethical dilemma, taking action, and assuming personal responsibility for our response.
