How Psychology can inform Moral Understanding - Applications in Organisations

Event Date: 
17 February 2016
The UWA Club
Hackett Drive

Moral Psychology investigates human functioning in moral contexts, and asks how these results may impact debate in ethical theory. Moral Psychology is developing as an interdisciplinary approach that draws on both the empirical resources of the human sciences and the conceptual resources of philosophical ethics.
In this presentation, psychologist Ralph Monley will present an interactive session on moral psychology, addressing some fundamental questions, while summarising recent writing and research findings. He will integrate this with practical and professional dimensions together with reflections from his career experience in organisational psychology.
This will include the development and application of integrity in the Commonwealth Public Service senior leadership capability framework and the presence of related dimensions in personality questionnaires, from the Big Five, 16PF, Humm Wadsworth, OPQ, and Saville Wave, together with ethical decision making in business organisational settings. At a broader level, Ralph will note the identification of the six moral virtues touched by politics.
The session will conclude with a Q & A opportunity.

Ralph Monley is an independent organisational psychologist, with over 30 years’ experience, primarily consulting to government and the private sector, but also spanning periods as an RAAF psychologist and as an HR Manager in a computer company.
He has had a lengthy association with SHL (now CEB) and Chandler Macleod, as well as operating as Principal of his own company, Miraquin Psychological Services.
Ralph was also active on the COPWA committee for a period of 7 years up to 2013.
