Ethics for the Practice of Psychology in Canada, Revised and Expanded Edition
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. Each chapter includes case studies for practicing ethical decision-making, and a reflective journal to provide an opportunity for awareness of 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.

"Given its reliance on the CPA Code of Ethics, its readability, and its thoroughness, the book is an excellent textbook or reference book for senior undergraduates and entry-level graduate students, as well as for practitioners wishing to renew their acquaintance with the range of ethical questions they encounter in their practice.... In the Preface the authors outline their goals for the book, which briefly stated include increasing ethical and legal knowledge, raising awareness of ethical issues in practice, promoting ethical decision-making skills and the ability to solve ethical dilemmas, and fostering the development of a professional ethical identity. These goals have been met and exceeded in this book. The authors provide knowledge of ethical concerns to practicing psychologists, researchers, and academics in a well-written book that is very readable and interesting." , Canadian Psychology, 2014, Vol. 55, No. 1 [Full review at DOI: 10.1037/a0035674]—David R.
