Introduction
A code of ethics helps to define professional behavior and serves to protect the public, the profession, and those who
practice within the profession. Ethical behavior involves incorporating the principles espoused in the code of ethics into
your personal and professional life and using the code to help determine a course of action. At the same time, ethical
behavior is about transparency. Can your behavior withstand the scrutiny of others? Will you be embarrassed, ashamed,
or concerned if someone else knew that you did or said something?
