· Utilize the websites provided in this week’s resources to review ethical codes from the following associations:
· American Psychological Association
· Psychology and Counseling Organization of the Islamic Republic of Iran
· Singapore Psychological Society
· European Federation of Psychologists’ Associations
· Review the third draft of “The Universal Declaration of Ethical Principles for Psychologists”.
· Review the four ethical situations described below and their related questions to consider in terms of the ethical codes specified above:
3. Suppose Minneapolis, MN is hit by an enormous natural disaster. Many people were unprepared for such a disaster and suffered mental and physical trauma. Would it be ethical for a psychologist to provide his or her services if he or she had not been specifically trained in disaster response? Do the ethical concerns change if the care is provided at the site of the natural disaster as opposed to at an office visit after the disaster has already occurred? Why or why not? Refer to the specific standards involved and provide a rationale for your answer.
3. Iran is under the threat of war from neighboring countries. There is concern that there are enemy sympathizers responsible for attacks within Iranian borders. Under what circumstances is it allowable for an Iranian psychologist to disclose confidential information without the consent of the client? Refer to the specific standards involved. Is there a possibility the Iranian government could misuse these standards? Why or why not?
3. A psychologist in Singapore wishes to refer a client because of a conflict in values and feelings of underlying threats to his safety. Due to these circumstances, the psychologist feels that he cannot provide competent services to his client. What steps should the psychologist take to ensure an appropriate referral? Can the psychologist “warn” the future psychologist that his client may pose harm to them? Why or why not? Refer to the specific standards involved.
3. A psychologist who is bound by the European Federation of Psychologists’ Association is contacted by a former client who, after a six-month absence from therapy, would like to resume his sessions. The psychologist is completely booked. What are the psychologist’s ethical responsibilities to the client? What should the psychologist do? Refer to the specific standards involved.
With these thoughts in mind:
By Day 3
Post a response to one of the four ethical situations described above using the ethical codes specified. Be sure to address each question posed in the situation you selected. Next, select two ethical codes from all listed above that you believe are the most important for the future of global psychology and explain why. Finally, respond to this question: Do you believe it is possible for there to be one set of ethical principles to govern all psychologists globally? Why or why not?
Be sure to support your postings and responses with specific references to the Learning Resources.
