Abstract Clinical practice, which involves working with and for others, can be a rich and powerful experience. Although major ethical dilemmas do arise, much of what we call ethics in clinical practice relates to the moment by moment decision-making that we do on a daily basis. This paper takes a very personal look at that process and at what we can learn from it not only about our clients, but also about ourselves.

L'activité clinique, qui implique un travail avec et à l'intention des autres, peut être une expérience à la fois enrichissante et puissante. Bien que des problèmes d'éthique importants font surface de temps en temps, ce que nous qualifions d'éthique en pratique clinique est plutôt relié à la prise de décision qui se fait au jour le jour. Cette communication jette un regard très personnel sur ce processus et sur les conclusions que nous pouvons en tirer non seulement sur nos clients, mais également sur nous-mêmes.
