Abstract
 
Description
Whether one's interests lie in psychological practice, counseling, research, or the classroom, psychologists today must deal with a broad range of ethical issues - from charging fees to maintaining a client's confidentiality, and from conducting research to respecting clients, colleagues, and students.

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 evolving trends in psychological research and practice, as well as extensive changes in the American Psychological research and practice, as well as extensive changes in the American Psychological Association's ethics code. Taking a practical, commonsense approach to ethics in modern-day psychological practice, this useful book offers constructive means for both preventing problems and resolving ethical predicaments. This new edition retains the key features that have contributed to its popularity, including extensive case studies that provide illustrative guidance on a wide variety of topics, such as fee setting, advertising for clients, research ethics, sexual attraction, classroom ethics, managed care issues, confidentiality, and much more. Highly readable, the book unites an accessible style with humorous anecdotes that highlight the human side of ethics and make the book a pleasure to read. "Ethics in Psychology" will be an indispensable guide to ethical decision-making for all psychologists and students in psychology.
