PSYR 8704 - Ethics and Standards of Psychological Practice


(5 cr.) The guidelines for practice in specific psychological services and with identified populations are explored. The ethical decision-making process is studied in depth. Topics include informed consent, confidentiality, duty to warn, mandated reporting, record keeping, the limits of competency, and dual relationships. Students in the course also address issues of professional development such as supervision, peer consultation, and continuing education. This course is provided in-residence, which means that students divide their time between online activities and activities completed in-residence, with the majority of the instruction occurring face-to-face during the in-residence class meetings.
