Examines the American Psychological Association's Ethics Code using subtle and complex cases and vignettes that requires any student or psychologist to contemplate the issues carefully and consider appropriate actions. The authors encourage an ethical process of analysis, deliberation, and decision making. Not only does the book describe complex ethical dilemmas that any of psychologist or counselor might encounter, but it also offers different frameworks through which to examine each dilemma: legal, moral, values-driven, and global - all while offering clear and succinct commentary on the dictates of the APA Code of Ethics. The book also uses codes of ethics from other countries' psychological societies to offer commentary and analysis of the APA's.
