Designed to fill a gap in the literature on professional ethics for psychologists, this book covers topics typically neglected in existing books, being more radical and controversial than much of the literature in this area. Rather than take ethical pronouncements associated with some organizations as dogma not to be questioned but simply understood and observed, the editors of this Handbook have encouraged a questioning, critical attitude. This book is therefore in part an attempt to push harder on the ethical impulse in psychologists, pushing beyond `comfort zones' to encourage positions of moral leadership.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"The Handbook of Professional Ethics for Psychologists provides a much needed review of the philosophical issues and unanswered questions raised by the Code of Ethics of the American Psychological Association. This book will make an excellent textbook for ethics courses in the social sciences. The coverage of topics makes the book appropriate to address the current movement for Responsible Conduct of Research, a movement that is likely to result in requiring all university personnel to have proficiency in the ethics of research, mentoring, and scholarship."

-- Arthur C. Houts

This carefully edited volume is comprehensive in its scope, ranging from ethical considerations in research to the ethics of working with gays and lesbians in psychotherapy to ethical issues in the use of animals in research. The two dozen chapters are carefully and clearly written and provide useful guidelines for resolving important questions and issues. But at least as significant, this book encourages the reader to think deeply about the many complex issues that are inherent to the study of behavior and efforts to make changes in people's lives. Sometimes unequivocal answers are elusive, but knowing what questions to ask surely enhances our scientific and applied efforts. A must read.

-- Gerald Davison
