How has the 2002 American Psychological Association’s (APA) Ethical Principles of Psychologists and Code of Conduct been applied to ethical decision-making in the science and practice of psychology since its adoption? What challenges and insights has it presented over the past six years? In this Second Edition of Decoding the Ethics Code, Celia B. Fisher, Ph.D. – who chaired the APA Ethics Code Task Force – addresses these important issues using the same user-friendly format and in-depth coverage of the First Edition

Key Features of the Second Edition: 

  • Incorporates scholarly reactions to the Ethics Code and sheds new light on application since its adoption in 2002
  • Highlights updated case examples and expands discussion of the ethical decision-making model introduced in the First Edition
  • Introduces “hot topic” sections at the end of chapters to demonstrate the applicability of the Code in the face of emerging moral debates – such as the involvement in psychologists in military interrogations and the integration of religion and spirituality in therapy
  • Includes an alternate “Table of Contents” organized so readers and instructors can quickly find how standards throughout the Ethics Code relate to specific concerns and settings

Intended Audience

This insider’s guide is an essential resource for new and established mental health practitioners. Graduate students of psychology will find this core text a valuable source of information on ethics in psychology.
