Ethics in Psychology: Professional Standards and Cases
Oxford University Press Inc
Gerald P. Koocher
Most psychologists enter the profession with a strong desire to help others, but clinical practice often involves decision making containing a certain degree of ethical ambiguity. Good intentions are important, but unfortunately, they do not always protect the practitioner and client from breaches in ethical conduct. Now in a new edition, Ethics in Psychology, the most widely read and cited ethics textbook in psychology, considers many of the ethical questions and dilemmas that psychologists encounter in their everyday practice, research, and teaching. The book has been completely updated in response to extensive changes in the American Psychological Association's ethics code, providing both a critical assessment and elucidation of key topics in the APA's guidelines. This comprehensive volume takes a practical approach to ethics and offers constructive means for both preventing problems and recognizing, approaching, and resolving ethical predicaments. Written in a highly readable and accessible style, this new edition retains the key features which have contributed to its popularity, including extensive case studies that provide illustrative guidance on a wide variety of topics, including fee setting, advertising for clients, research ethics, sexual attraction, and confidentiality, among others. Ethics in Psychology will be important reading for all psychologists in clinical practice, research, or the classroom, as well as students in psychology.
