Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: Nicholas Greco IV, MS, BCETS, CATSM (Columbia College of Missouri)
Description: Although this edition on ethical practice of psychology is not a radical change from the 1998 edition, it is in direct response to the 2002 Ethics Code of the American Psychological Association (APA). It is obvious to most readers that for a book on the Ethical Practice in Organizations to remain current and insightful, it must change with the APA Ethics Code.
Purpose: This is intended as a limited revision of the 1998 edition, in response to the 2002 ethics code. A number of the cases have been updated and, for some cases, meanings were clarified.
Audience: While industrial organizational psychologists will derive the most benefit, psychologists in the other areas of the corporate arena will find this book insightful. Additionally, because ethics is at the heart of everything we do as psychologists, most of us would benefit from reading this. The contributing authors are highly credible authorities.
Features: The book takes readers on a wonderful exploration into such topics as personnel selection, needs assessment, conflicts of interest, billing and marketing issues, and professional behavior. An especially rich discussion is on research and academic issues, namely with the issue of publications and authorship. Everything in this book is supported by research and terrific case examples which test one's level of knowledge and ethics.
Assessment: This is timely, relevant, and essential reading for all psychologists.
