St.Amant Ethics Committee

Session: Sex, Drugs, and Rock ‘n Roll – The Ethics of Pleasure

In the 1950s and 60s, the phrase “Sex, drugs and rock ‘n roll” tended to ridicule the movement of rebellion by youth and young and young adults from the constraints of societal and parental authority. Today, the phrase playfully describes a lifestyle of pleasure-seeking and freedom. In this session, members of the St.Amant Ethics Committee will facilitate conversations on the topic of dignity of risk and informed risk when it comes to the lifestyle choices of people with disabilities. St.Amant Ethics Committee members are committed to the advancement of ethics by increasing sensitivity to ethical issues that can arise in day-to-day operations and by supporting the Mission and Values of St.Amant.
