Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

“This unique book gives psychologists an invaluable and dynamic understanding of the ethics code. It takes a document that is often viewed in isolation and places it in the rich context of research, constant questioning, and critical thinking through which it evolved to speak to today’s psychologist. This book is a must-read for all who are interested in ethics, out profession, or the dilemmas we face in out work – which is to say, pretty much all of us.” – Kenneth S. Pope, Ph.D., ABPP, author (with Melba Vasquez) of Ethics in Psychotherapy and Counseling:  A Practical Guide, 4th Edition (Wiley, 2010)

Ethical Practice in Psychology presents the reflections of the working group established to undertake a comprehensive review of the Australian Psychological Society Code of Ethics. Including a complete copy of the 2007 Code, it emphasizes the deliberative approach required to translate fundamental ethical doctrines into workable principles and policies, and the contentious issues in the course of that process.

The discussions involved many senior members of the profession. Each was invited to select a topic that he or she has found particularly stimulating and write about the issues involved from his or her unique perspective. The result provides unique insights into how key ethical doctrines, the norms and views of a profession, legislative frameworks and the spirit of the times are reconciled and accommodated when translating theory into effective guidelines for practice. Above all, it highlights the complex and often contradictory forces that must be integrated in ethical decision making.
