The first edition of this casebook reflected the complexities and increasing litigiousness of the modern workplace and was designed to stimulate thought and discussion about ethical practice in industrial and organizational psychology. Since the book was published, the "Ethical Principles of Psychologists and Code of Conduct" of the American Psychological Association has been revised and contains new material of particular relevance to organizational consultants. This second edition has been updated to reflect the provisions of the new code. Illustrated by case examples based on real-life situations, this volume covers personnel selection, organizational diagnosis and intervention, consulting relationships, research and academic issues, professional training and certification, billing and marketing, and the ethics of professional behavior. The Ethical Practice of Psychology in Organizations, Second Edition, makes ethical thinking come alive and belongs on the bookshelf of every I/O psychologist, human resource professional, and graduate student in I/O and business programs.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: 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.

    Update of a Great Casebook!

    I've used the first edition of this casebook in my classes to help students understand the ethical issues in applying psychology to work issues. This update of the casebook using the 2002 APA Ethics Code is a welcome addition, an improvement on a classic!
