Description of values and ethics are not only broadened but also colloquial due to its overlapping meanings such as principles, moral, fundamental values, and principles. According to Taylor (2010), ethics are underlying convictions, life stances or ideals that act as a general guide to behavior, and or a reference point in evaluating beliefs or actions. This is an ethical inventory paper that seeks to discuss the significance of understanding one’s perspective of ethics, the connection between professional and personal ethics in psychology, APA decision making process and how it facilitates ethical professional behavior, analysis of an EAI scores and how they relate to aspirations of enforceable standards. Psychology requires adherent by professionals
The APA established ethical standards for internal factors including competence, privacy/confidentiality, record keeping and fees, education and training, and assessments for the purpose of government and/or professional associations, employers and other funding bodies that require accurate and appropriate records to be kept of the contact that they have with clientele. The vital aspect of keeping records is an of immense importance to the professional world. Simply put, the mere reason is that professionals need means of accountability for the services that they provide to others. They need a method of showing accuracy, and up-to-date data on their services provided. The aforementioned data would in fact best be served and supported through records.
Supervisors are ultimately responsible for the ethical and legal actions that result from trainees. Clinical Supervisors face several potential ethical issues that arise in the process of training and evaluating future mental health professionals. As a supervisor, I will aspire to promote student personal growth and development so they could serve as ethical independent professionals in the future. By targeting the role of a gatekeeper, I will try to avoid the ethical issues that arise in multiple relationships. Conflicting relationships with trainees provide core issues in the differential of power and status that exist in the therapeutic relationship.
The ethical principles of the Belmont Report share many similarities with the basic principles of the APA Code of Ethics, yet each possess unique differences. The Belmont Report is built around three main principles. These principles are respect for persons, beneficence, and justice (Kenneth, 1979). These principles represent the core values the Belmont Report was based upon. The Belmont Report is primarily used in research situations.
The APA devised ethical principles and standards in the field of psychology in order to provide a common order for practitioners. The principles are guides and the standards are rules, each supporting the other. The ethical norms within both the standards and the principles offer convergence of ideas at many points and divergent ideas at other points. The five principles within the Code of Conduct are used to justify actions and behaviors in order to protect, respect, and appreciate a person’s rights and values in all situations. When practitioners are faced with ethical dilemmas, they must refer to the common base provided by the APA and proceed with the recommendations there in.
This will discuss the basic laws and guiding principles that would help the readers to gain ideas on how to keep the high standard of safeguarding the information. In addition to that, we will discuss a few scenarios of confidentiality issue in terms of Ethics, Legal and social perspective. At the end of the research, there is a sample form of what must appear in the Confidentiality form to clearly view the basic information
The main knowledge claim in the question is that shared knowledge shapes personal knowledge. In my essay, I will focus on the Human Sciences and Ethics as example of areas of knowledge supporting and refuting the knowledge claim. Human sciences are seen as a very reliable source of knowledge and greatly affects our personal knowledge as it is mostly presented by authorities. Ethics can be seen as a set of rules provided by the community to decide what is right and what is wrong. It is a discussion of the way we ought to live our lives, the justifications of moral judgements and their implications for the individual and the group.
Introduction Ethics are appropriate in all the fields of human activity. Ethics are important for us while dealing with others, environment and animals. It is vital for us to have an official statement or a national reference point for ethical considerations regarding human research, treatment of humans and healthcare for humans (NHMRC Act, 2007). The current essay focuses on various ethical and legal standards of healthcare treatment that has to be provided to the humans and the importance of such activity. The ethical principles not only have impact on the research subjects but, also will influence the people affected by the research outcomes.
Throughout the field of philosophy, ethics play an extensive role. This branch of knowledge is significantly important within the area of moral philosophy, as the main concept touches on moral principles and behaviour of mankind as a consequence of such principles. LaFollette (2000) expressed his view that as a whole, humanity ‘should better understand ourselves, our place in the world, and our relationship to others’, from which I believe, can be derived through ethics. When studying the behaviour of humans and their proficiency to make decisions, I have learned that there are two leading philosophical positions which determine the way in which we think, both rationally and irrationally, and influence our decisions. These two principles consist of consequentialism and deontology.
(2014) it was stated that when making a decision, healthcare professionals should always consider the potential consequences that could result from the available options given, putting into consideration the legal and ethical result of the decision that is being made. This corresponds with the British Medical Association which states that “medical ethics is seen as implementing ethical reasoning to medical decision making” (NHS, 2010a). There are dilemmas faced by healthcare professionals in the clinical setting during decision making (Hardy and Smith, 2008) hence, in decision making, the professional code of
