Ethics form an important part of our daily life, our thoughts, and our behaviors. Psychologists, whether they teach, serve clients, or do research, have a special responsibility to follow the ethical code of their profession due to the impact their work has on the lives of other human beings. This course focuses on ethical development on a personal and professional level and offers an initial look at the complexity of ethics in psychology.
Throughout this course, you have kept journal entries each week, aimed at helping you trace your own ethical development, identify important issues in ethics, and address special questions, or issues that might interest you.
