Fisher, address ES key questions in the first major work to focus specifically on ethical issues involving work with ethnocultural populations. Filling gaps and questions left unanswered by general rules of scientific conduct such as those embodied in federal regulations and professional codes, this Handbook will help guide ethical decision making for social and behavioral science research with multicultural groups for years to come.

Editorial Reviews

Ana Mari Cauce
"A timely topic . . . [t]his might be an excellent book as a text for a graduate class. All APA-approved clinical and counseling programs have to teach a class on ethics and this would be a good reader, or supplementary reader, for such a class. "
Donald B. Pope-Davis
In recent years, there has been much criticism in the literature about the development and quality of research in the area of the psychological study of ethnic minority issues. This criticism, whether real or imagined, has nevertheless influenced the kind of research that has emerged during the past few years. This Handbook, edited by Joseph Trimble and Celia Fisher, is, in my opinion, an outstanding response to this criticism. They have provided a book that clearly articulates an important ethical imperative: As the faces of America changes, so too must we as researchers transform our research designs to be more culturally inclusive. This Handbook pokes, prods, and pushes its reader to shift research paradigms, creating for some a dialectical tension that challenges preconceived notions of ethnic minority research. Imagine, as Trimble and Fisher point out, that 'soon the people of America will be better described as America's People of Color.' If such is the case, then those of us who choose to engage in this research must be prepared to acknowledge and understand that as scholars we must lead by example. This Handbook provides the reader with all of the tools to do so and must be taken seriously by all those who want to participate in the conversation.
