As applied practitioners ethics is ever-present in the work we do. Our ethical compass informs every decision we make before, during and after working with a client, and an understanding of ethical issues is vital throughout our career. The aim in this chapter is to bring ethics to life, challenge thinking and lay the foundations for becoming an ethical practitioner. Whilst we cannot provide a comprehensive guide to every ethical situation, we will equip foundational tools to navigate ethical situations as they arise. We will start by explaining ethics in the context of applied sport and exercise practice before discussing some key ethical principles and theories (supported by practical examples). We will then finish with guidance on becoming an ethical practitioner and some example scenarios to show how ethical principles can be applied in practice. This chapter can provide a starting point, embedding ethical concepts in practice will require ongoing reflection, discussion and an openness to learn from experience.
