Moral Discomfort in the Field of Adapted Physical Activity

Welcome to the What's New in APE Podcast blog/podcast. In this episode, I had a conversation with Amanda Ebert (@eberta2) about ethical and moral issues that practitioners in the field of adapted physical activity (APA) deal with on a regular basis. This conversation was guided by a paper Ms. Ebert and her adviser Dr. Donna Goodwin published from her Master's thesis called "Sand in the Shorts: Experiences of Moral Discomfort in Adapted Physical Activity Professional Practice". Ms. Ebert recently completed her Master's degree at the University of Alberta and is now a Recreation and Physical Activity consultant for Equality Fitness and Recreation. Within her recently published article, Ms. Ebert interviewed a number of APA practitioners about the moral issues that they face, and how they attempt to navigate them. Within this discussion we also confer about common moral issues APA practitioners may encounter, why and how to discuss these moral discomforts, and that it is normal to have these feelings about moral discomfort within such a complex field.
