This third edition of Ethical Conflicts in Psychology reviews the basic ethical issues involved in the various roles psychologists play and updates readers on such complex issues as multiple relationships; privacy, privilege, and duty-to-warn; and deception in research.

This classic volume includes articles and books that have been carefully excerpted to illuminate the most salient points related to ethics. Excerpts are then linked to a commentary that highlights opposing viewpoints, poses lively discussion questions, and suggests additional readings in selected areas. This volume also contains the American Psychological Association's newly sanctioned 2002 Ethical Principles of Psychologists and Code of Conduct as well as the Ethics Committee of the American Psychological Association's Rules and Procedures.

Over 20 new articles with commentary have been added on topics such as providing services on the Internet, navigating the new federal regulatory obligations of confidentiality, and practicing ethically within the parameters of managed care.

First published in 1995, Ethical Conflicts in Psychology quickly became a definitive and valued resource. Widely adopted as a textbook in graduate psychology courses in ethics and professional development, this innovative volume presents readers with over 100 different perspectives on crucial ethical issues under the guidance of an expert ethics educator, psychologist, and attorney. This volume will continue to help researchers, practitioners, and teachers in psychology become more discerning about their own behavior and the ethical constraints under which they work.
