Overview

How has the 2002 American Psychological Association's (APA) Ethical Principles of Psychologists and Code of Conduct been applied to ethical decision-making in the science and practice of psychology since its adoption? What challenges and insights has it presented over the past six years? In this Second Edition of Decoding the Ethics Code, Celia B. Fisher, Ph.D. - who chaired the APA Ethics Code Task Force - addresses these important issues using the same user-friendly format and in-depth coverage of the First Edition. Key Features of the Second Edition:
• Incorporates scholarly reactions to the Ethics Code and sheds new light on application since its adoption in 2002
• Highlights updated case examples and expands discussion of the ethical decision-making model introduced in the First Edition
• Introduces "hot topic" sections at the end of chapters to demonstrate the applicability of the Code in the face of emerging moral debates - such as the involvement in psychologists in military interrogations and the integration of religion and spirituality in therapy
• Includes an alternate "Table of Contents" organized so readers and instructors can quickly find how standards throughout the Ethics Code relate to specific concerns and settings
• A student website at http://www.sagepub.com/fisher2estudy provides state-specific laws and policies, along with exercises and sample scenarios. Intended Audience This insider's guide is an essential resource for new and established mental health practitioners. Graduate students of psychology will find this core text a valuable source of information on ethics in psychology.

Editorial Reviews

Ethics & Behavior
“Decoding The Ethics Code: A Practical Guide for Psychologists is a valuable resource that I’ve placed next to my dictionary, APA publication manual, texts on statistics, and other references I reach for several times a week. Given the editorial cycle of the ethical code, the book will represent money well spent for at least the next 10 years.”
Contemporary Psychology
"Fisher has crafted an insider's guide to the complex document that delineates our ethical conduct in all domains of practice, research, and teaching. . . . Never before has it been so easy to find what you are looking for in the code. . . . The decoding operation goes well beyond a simple conversion from the 1992 to 2002 versions. Readers also get a thoughtful commentary on the thinking that guided the framers of the new version, and will also guide future interpreters of the code. It is a valuable tool, indeed. "
Dorothy W. Cantor
"Every psychologist, clinician or academic, whose intention is to behave ethically, vastly increases the odds of success by reading and applying Dr. Celia Fisher’s cogent, thoughtful and practical guide to the Ethics Code."
Philip G. Zimbardo
"The process of revising the code was a labor of love undertaken by Celia Fisher who was the wise and sensitive expert leader of a large working group dedicated to developing ethical standards, principles, aspirations and practical advice for protecting the rights and integrity of clients, patients and research participants. "Decoding the Ethics Code" is the perfect introduction for anyone interested in fully understanding and utilizing these ethical concerns….It is must reading for everyone concerned about navigating the paths between the rights of individuals and the needs of science, practice and society."
