Dr. Anthony Sciglitano speaking at the first Faculty Retreat Series of Fall 2017.

We are asked to make judgments of value on a daily basis. How do we make these judgments, and what influences do we face when we consider the goodness of something? Decisions about ethics and morality are often influenced by emotion. This session will explore the cognitive and affective aspects of values and the struggle to search for authenticity. Using cognitional structure as a foundation for understanding ethics, we will discuss how deepening awareness of the source of moral judgments can impact daily actions and lead us to a more authentic life. 
Theresa Bartolotta, Ph.D., CCC-SLP is Professor of Speech-Language Pathology at Monmouth University.
