Ethical codes | Psychology homework help

 

To prepare for this Discussion:

  • Review Chapter 3 in your course text, Research Methods for the Behavioral Sciences. Pay particular attention to ethical standards related to psychological research.
  • Review this week’s DVD program, “Ethics.” Think about the ethical principles that are important to follow when conducting forensic psychology research.
  • Review the APA’s Ethical Principles of Psychologists and Code of Conduct and the American Psychology-Law Society’s (AP-LS) Specialty Guidelines for Forensic Psychologists. Focus on the ethical principles, standards, and guidelines that apply to research.
  • Select two ethical principles, standards, or guidelines that apply to research and that you believe might or should be revised in the future.
  • Think about how the two ethical principles, standards, or guidelines you selected could or should be changed and why.

With these thoughts in mind:

Post by Day 4 your prediction of how the two ethical principles, standards, or guidelines you selected from the APA Ethical Principles of Psychologists and Code of Conduct or AP-LS’s Specialty Guidelines for Forensic Psychologists might be revised in the future, why they might be revised, and what the revision might look like and why.
