    The Virtuous Patient: Psychotherapy and the Cultivation of Character.Duff R. Waring - 2012 - Philosophy, Psychiatry, and Psychology 19 (1):25-35.
    The standard approach to ethics in psychotherapy is to focus on the therapist. Although normative “boundary” ethics revolves around what the therapist ought, or ought not, to do, virtue ethics can revolve around the kind of person the therapist ought to be. One can thus apply virtue ethical theory to clinical practice and argue for therapist virtues that are relevant to meeting professional standards and to working effectively through the problems that arise in psychotherapy. Considerably less attention has been paid (...)

  4. Medical Benefit and the Human Lottery: An Egalitarian Approach to Patient Selection.Duff R. Waring - 2001 - Dissertation, York University (Canada)
    The central issue of this dissertation is known in bioethics as the problem of fair chances versus best outcomes. The decision-making context is patient selection for scarce, transplantable organs. This problem poses two options for patient selection: either select by a procedure which affords fair chances to all medically suitable transplant candidates or select those whose prognoses indicate the highest levels of prospective medical benefit.

    Telling it like it was: dignity therapy and moral reckoning in palliative care.Duff R. Waring - 2021 - Theoretical Medicine and Bioethics 42 (1):25-40.
    This article offers a conceptual analysis of self-respect and self-esteem that informs the ethics of psychotherapy in palliative care. It is focused on Chochinov’s Dignity Therapy, an internationally recognized treatment offered to dying patients who express a need to bolster their sense of self-worth. Although Dignity Therapy aims to help such patients affirm their value through summarized life stories that are shared with their survivors, it is not grounded in a robust theory of self-respect. There is reason to be skeptical (...)
