Choosing the right pathway begins with the recognition that there needs to be a fundamentally respectful and ethical relationship between services and the people they assist, i.e. "right relationship". Secondly, it requires that such individuals recognise that they can personally embody right relationship ethics in how they relate to people, even if the systems of which they are part behave in a quite contrary manner. Thirdly, it requires that such persons be willing to bear the cost of upholding right relationship ethics; positive ethics held without commitment cannot possibly provide a counterweight to deeply embedded negative ethics.
