"This book approaches ethics from a unique perspective that appeals to students. In addition to providing stimulating cases, it provides the framework and legal background important to psychologists-in-training. Amazing work!...The vignette approach makes the book much more interesting than its competitors." -Misty Ginicola, Southern Connecticut State University
Full coverage of the American Psychological Association's (APA) Ethical Principles of Psychologists and Code of Conduct and engaging vignettes to draw students into Ethics for Psychologists, a unique textbook that explores the standards of conduct in the field of psychology from key perspectives, including the multicultural, moral, and legal perspectives. Focusing on complex ethical dilemmas students may encounter in real life, this book offers a variety of frameworks through which to examine such dilemmas, as well as commentaries about the dictates of our personal codes of ethics. Students are challenged to take control of their learning experience by moving beyond the basics of looking up each situation to find "the right thing to do," into a more active and engaged approach with the goal of becoming ethical thinkers and informed decision-makers.
