Q.1. 

Does any dissonance emerge as you consider the layers of values affecting your views and preferences as a therapist faces with an IPV circumstance? Can you sustain expert power and professional values in your contribution to the ecology of therapy with victims? What about perpetrators.

Q.2.   

Review Figure 1-1 in chapter 1. This figure depicts the struggle for balancing external factors and internal factors for ethical practice by therapists. Do you have balance between the internal and external factors affecting your approach to serving clients in an IPV circumstance? If not, which factors seem to weigh more heavily: internal or external?

Q.3.

 Which approach or combination of approaches seems to be most compelling for your view on client care in an IPV circumstance? Do you find resolution of your dissonance? Do you find balance between external and internal factors affecting the ecology of therapy?

Q.4.

 What are your conclusions about the example of IPV? Do you agree with ethical concerns emphasized in the example? What was overlooked? Would the approaches to decision making inform you if you were the therapist? Do the proposed discretionary actions coincide with your profession worldview? If not, how would you approach this matter differently?
