The APA Ethics Code Commentary and Case Illustrations is a comprehensive, readable examination of the APA Ethics Code and the complex process of ethical decision making. The authors describe the Standard of the Code, their application, and how the Code can guide psychologists when ethical dilemmas arise. Case illustration are used throughout the book to demonstrate the process a psychologist will need to work through when confronted with an ethical dilemma. In a wide variety of case illustrations that address most of the 89 Standards of the Ethics Code, the authors describe a realistic, everyday scenario; identify the ethical dilemma; map out the decision-making factors; and present appropriate resolutions. This book includes commentary and case illustrations that are applicable to the many subfields of psychology (e.g., consulting, forensic, education and training, research, organizational, public and private practice). The authors also closely examine how the specific Ethical Standards in the Code relate to its general principles (e.g., beneficence and nonmaleficence, fidelity and responsibility).
The authors show that a though working knowledge of relevant rules and professional codes of ethics, combined with a systematic method of approaching and resolving dilemmas, is essential for the ethical practice of psychology. This book of commentary is a must-read for psychologists at all levels of professional experience, from beginning students to those whose entire professional lives have been devoted to the field of psychology. The authors encourage psychologists to accept the invitations offered in the preamble to the APA Ethics Code to embrace a lifelong commitment to the highest ethical standards in the profession of psychology.
