In this new edition of the groundbreaking Ethics for the Practice of Psychology in Canada, content is both revised and expanded. Continuing to fill a vital need for a Canadian textbook, the authors focus on major ethical issues faced by psychologists, including obtaining consent, protecting confidentiality, helping without harming, providing services across cultures, promoting social justice, and conducting research, while incorporating the Canadian Code of Ethics for Psychologists (2013). Each chapter includes case studies for practicing ethical decision-making, and a reflective journal to provide an opportunity for awareness on personal motives and biases relevant to making ethical choices. Written primarily for students in professional psychology graduate programs, the book is also ideal for anyone preparing to practice in Canada or for experienced psychologists seeking to maintain or enhance their ethical knowledge, skills, and integrity.
