AbstractThis book considers many of the ethical questions and dilemmas that psychologists encounter in their everyday practice, research, and teaching. It considers evolving trends in psychological research and practice, as well the extensive changes that have been made in the American Psychological Association's ethics code. Taking a practical, commonsense approach to ethics in modern-day psychological practice, this useful book offers constructive means for both preventing problems and resolving ethical predicaments. It also includes a section of case studies dealing with topics such as fee setting, advertising for clients, research ethics, sexual attraction, classroom ethics, managed care issues, confidentiality, and much more.
