The objective of the presentation is to explain and demonstrate a new methodology for the exploration and resolution of ethical dilemmas in supervision. What we propose is a stretching between ethics of responsibility and ethics of conviction (Weber, 1995) to find the freedom by which the intimate comfort zone of the inner ethics of the person is obtained. The proposed approach is quite different from the existing ones because its primary purpose is not to make a choice but to find another path to escape the dilemma. The role of emotion is key in this process.
