The Ethics Desk Reference for Psychologists is an easy-to-use pocket guide that aids psychologists in identifying and avoiding ethical dilemmas. Authors Barnett and Johnson provide a jargon-free summary of each section of the APA Ethics Code (2002), note common dilemmas and conflicts that are associated with each section, and offer practical suggestions for preventing conflict and for promoting positive practice.
Additional resources to help psychologists effectively respond to ethical conflicts include:
- a model for ethical decision making
- a detailed checklist of what to do when facing an ethics complaint
- recommendations for ethical practice when faced with high-risk situations
- a list of ethics resources
This compact desk reference is an essential resource for all psychologists, trainees, and graduate students.
