Cathy created this action structure to help people explore a difficult decision from four distinct perspectives. At LPTI and the recent ASGPP Conference, Cathy offered the Four Chairs to help the protagonists discern their motivations to enter – or not enter – a dual relationship with a client or student. However, the action structure is useful for exploring any ethical dilemma. By examining a predicament from the perspective held by each of the chairs, protagonists (and group members) gain insights to help guide their choices and actions.
