AbstractThis book discusses the main ethical issues faced by mental health researchers, and provides some guidance about how researchers can work with institutional review boards and federal legislation protecting human research subjects. It covers issues as getting informed consent from individuals with cognitive disabilities, how to protect the privacy of research subjects, and how to develop trust between researchers and participants in research. The book includes a number of case studies to illustrate key ethical points and effective problem solving strategies.
