Additional Book Details
"This carefully edited volume is comprehensive in its scope, ranging from ethical considerations in research to the ethics of working with gays and lesbians in psychotherapy to ethical issues in the use of animals in research. The two dozen chapters are carefully and clearly written and provide useful guidelines for resolving important questions and issues. But at least as significant, this book encourages the reader to think deeply about the many complex issues that are inherent to the study of behavior and efforts to make changes in people′s lives. Sometimes unequivocal answers are elusive, but knowing what questions to ask surely enhances our scientific and applied efforts. A must read."
- Gerald Davison, University of Southern California
"The Handbook of Professional Ethics for Psychologists provides a much needed review of the philosophical issues and unanswered questions raised by the Code of Ethics of the American Psychological Association. This book will make an excellent textbook for ethics courses in the social sciences. The coverage of topics makes the book appropriate to address the current movement for Responsible Conduct of Research, a movement that is likely to result in requiring all university personnel to have proficiency in the ethics of research, mentoring, and scholarship."
-Arthur C. Houts, University of Memphis
The Handbook of Professional Ethics for Psychologists provides comprehensive coverage of topics typically neglected in books on ethical issues in psychology. Rather than take ethical pronouncements as dogma not to be questioned but simply understood and observed, William T. O′Donohue and Kyle E. Ferguson encourage a questioning, critical attitude. Divided into four parts, this provocative text provides comprehensive coverage of foundational issues, professional issues, special topics, and special populations.
