Caring for Self
We believe in the worth and dignity of the individual, and we value caring and respect for self and others.
We respect and care for the self by preserving professional identity through the support of, and for, the professional association, WCA, and by establishing and maintaining professional standards and ethical behavior. We also respect and care for the self through continuing personal development. We also value examination of the relationship among the intellectual, physical, spiritual, and psychological aspects of human development. We respect and care for others through identification and the removal of barriers to human development and through pro-active approaches to human rights. This respect and caring for others extends to concerns about global issues such as world peace and the ecology. We value and celebrate the diversity of cultures and interests within our society, our profession, and our association. We also value the power, strength and support of a unified profession.
