ethical principles paper

View the APA website. 

Locate an article on the website regarding ethical issues. You must use an APA publication for this assignment.

Sometimes students have trouble finding or picking an article.  You might try a search that includes some common ethical issues in the search terms.  For example: informed consent, confidentiality, dual relationships, etc. Make sure that the issue clearly involves the psychological field and the ethical issues effecting psychologists.  Make sure you present a conflict, not a review of ethical principles. 


Write a 1,050- to 1,400-word paper that discusses the following: 

  • The issue in detail - you should be able to cover this in a summary of the article
  • The ethical principle in this article that has been violated.  Make sure you identify this. 
  • Diversity implications that are involved.  Diversity here refers to special populations.  Is there a particular population that this conflict refers to?  Why or why not?
  • A mitigation strategy for the ethical issue.  Mitigation here means solution.  What steps should be taken to fix the situation or keep it from occuring in the future?

Format your paper consistent with APA guidelines.
