Ethical dilemmas arrive in all shapes and sizes, and can affect many personal domains: health/medicine, business, career, finance, and family. 

The field of ethics provides educated and skilled practitioners to aid those who are in the midst of an ethical crisis.  Ethicists also work with clients to offer proactive steps to avoid ethical conflict.
