Minnesota Psychological Association presents:
Diverse Perspectives on Everyday Ethics: APA, MPA, and the Minnesota Board of Psychology
When: June 7, 2013
Where: Metropolitan State University, St. Paul Campus, 700 E. Seventh St., St. Paul, MN 55106
About the Program: Psychologists in every area of practice inevitably encounter ethical challenges in their work. Requests for letters to the court, “Facebook friendships,” or records for a couple with the permission of only one party are examples. Beyond these common dilemmas, we are all vulnerable to mistakes spawned by a lack of knowledge of evolving ethical standards, and to personal problems and circumstances that may interfere with normally sound judgment. Participants will have an opportunity to discuss case vignettes and to hear diverse perspectives from members of the APA Ethics Committee and Ethics Office, the MPA Ethics Committee, and the Board of Psychology. Panelists will emphasize how ethics codes and law can be used as resources to aid in sound decision-making.
