PSYC 8705 - Ethics and Standards of Professional Practice♦


(5 cr.) What constitutes fraudulent practice, and how can psychologists avoid it? In this course, students have the opportunity to answer questions such as this as they examine the psychologist’s principles of conduct, code of ethics, and standards of practice. They identify and analyze the guidelines for practice in specific psychological services and with identified populations, and they assess the ethical decision-making process. Students engage in weekly discussions on topical issues, including informed consent, confidentiality, duty to warn, mandated reporting, record keeping, the limits of competency, and dual relationships. They also consider the function of professional development, such as supervision, peer consultation, and continuing education, in reaching career goals and acquiring more diverse skill sets.
♦ Students may take this as a non-degree course, which means they do not have to be enrolled in a program. Contact an Enrollment Advisor [1-866-492-5336 (U.S.);1-443-627-7222 (toll)] for more information.
