In creating a Jungian perspective on professional ethics, this paper suggests that professions create ethical statements and codes predicated on idealized self-images and fail to engage with the shadow aspects of the occupational group. .. As most approaches to professional ethics, particularly as embodied in codes, are constructed around such persona images, I argue that they are too partial to be ethical in any deep sense. .. This paper explores the tensions in professional ethics, conceptualizes professions as psychic entities with the potential to integrate shadow material and suggests how such a Jungian approach might form the foundation of a new ethic.
