Overview

Ethics in Plain English is a practical and engaging resource that shows psychologists how to apply the principles of APA's Ethics Code to the ethical dilemmas that they encounter in their daily lives. This second edition has been wholly rewritten and updated to make it consistent with the newly revised standards of the APA Ethics Code (2002). Each ethical standard is reproduced in its entirety. Then it is translated into everyday language and is followed by a fictional case study that illustrates, in an entertaining way, how the standard might be applied to a real life situation. Examples of both problematic and exemplary behavior in diverse settings are provided. New to this edition are thought-provoking discussion questions after each case study, making the book even more useful for classroom use or self study.
