FPSY 6145 - Ethical Issues and Professional Responsibilities in Forensic Psychology♦


(5 cr.) A fundamental responsibility of forensic psychologists is to provide treatment, assessment, research, and training in an ethical manner. Through this course, students have the opportunity to acquire contemporary knowledge needed to apply ethical practice and professional responsibilities while working as forensic psychologists. Students explore the various roles and responsibilities of forensic psychologists. They examine the American Psychological Association’s Ethical Principles of Psychologists and Code of Conduct as well as the American Psychology-Law Society’s Specialty Guidelines for Forensic Psychology. Students apply these guidelines as well as critical-thinking and scholarly-writing skills to describe the ethical dilemmas, professional challenges, and approaches to overcome these issues within a professional forensic psychology role of their choice.
