“Engaged ethical contemplation is a lively, energizing, and embodied experience; it is best shared with others."
Ronee Griffith, Ph.D.
Dr. Ronee Griffith is a licensed psychologist and founder of the Relational Ethics Institute. Passionate interests in clinical psychology and moral philosophy led her to study ethical decision making in the mental health professions. Following a doctoral dissertation on experiential ethics education, she established the Relational Ethics Institute in 1988. She has served on the American Psychological Association’s Task Force on Ethics Education, collaborated with the Canadian Psychological Association’s Ethics Committee, and provided ethics training and consultation to federal, state, and private organizations in the United States and Canada. She presents for professional organizations representing licensed mental health practitioners, mental health agencies and hospitals, and church and civic groups.
She offers assessment and psychotherapy services for adults, both individual and couples, with emphasis on cultural-relational issues affecting women and men’s development. She believes that most challenges in personal relationships involve some measure of moral inquiry; those questions may involve one’s family and cultural backgrounds, one’s spiritual beliefs, and the corporate and institutional structures that influence us and our society.
