Summary: Decoding the Ethics Code: A Practical Guide for Psychologists introduces psychologists, professionals with whom they work, and the public to the 2002 American Psychological Association's Ethical Principles of Psychologists and Code of Conduct. The book helps psychologists apply the Ethics Code to the constantly changing scientific, professional, and legal realities of the discipline. Author Celia B. Fisher addresses the revised format, choice of wording, aspirational
rationale, and enforceability of the code and puts these changes into practical perspective for psychologists.

The book provides in-depth discussions of the foundation and application of each ethical standard to the broad spectrum of scientific, teaching, and professional roles of psychologists. This unique guide helps psychologists effectively use ethical principles and standards to morally conduct their work activities, avoid ethical violations, and, most importantly, preserve and protect the fundamental rights and welfare of those whom they serve.

Decoding the Ethics Code features easy reference to a wide range of information, including
  • Clear examples of behaviors that would comply with or violate enforceable standards
  • A brief overview of the history behind the Ethics Code, enforcement of the code, professional liability issues, and the relationship between ethics and law
  • Flagging of standards that represent significant new directions in ethics regulation and enforcement as compared with the previous code
  • Integration throughout the text of the implications of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) for compliance with numerous standards
  • Easy identification of standards relevant to forensic practice, school psychology, industrial-organizational psychology, use of the Internet, prescription privileges, military and police psychology, and managed care
Decoding the Ethics Code will help new and established psychologists, psychology professors, students in graduate psychology programs, other mental health professionals, and the public understand and apply the new Ethics Code to their unique circumstances.
