Book Description

The Handbook of International Psychology Ethics discusses the most central, guiding principles of practice for mental health professionals around the world. For researchers, practicing mental health professionals, and students alike, the book provides a window into the values and belief systems of cultures worldwide. Chapters cover ethics codes from psychological associations and societies on five continents, translating each code into English and discussing vital questions around how the code is put into practice, what it means to association members and society at large, as well as how the code was developed within its unique historical, political, and cultural context.

Reviews

"Codes of ethics establish a covenant between a given profession and the public that it serves. As revealed in this book, there are universal aspects of psychology codes of ethics, but also culturally necessary inflections and variations. This impressive and well-written volume documents a global and non-ethnocentric understanding and appreciation of ethics for the profession of psychology and is an essential resource for anyone with an interest in the profession of psychology, or the desire to understand ethical models for professions." Keith S. Dobson, PhD, professor of clinical psychology, University of Calgary, Canada 

"This book presents a remarkable worldwide comparison of psychology ethics codes with a never seen before characteristic: listening to local voices describing and analyzing their ethics codes in their own terms. The thorough analysis of the impact of the Universal Declaration of Ethical Principles for Psychologists further enhances the text’s value. This book is one of a kind and a full demonstration of how non-ethnocentric research can enrich ethics in psychology, which makes a great contribution to the whole discipline." Dr. Andrea Ferrero, professor and researcher, Universidad Nacional de San Luis, Argentina

"This handbook is a remarkable contribution to the literature on professional ethics. It underscores the importance of viewing ethics codes as situated locally in culture and other contexts. The handbook features chapters by experts the world over on the development, implementation, impact, and cultural and contextual relevance of their country’s ethics code. It adopts an idiographic approach to comparing ethics codes, deriving common and distinctive elements rather than ethnocentrically imposing them. This perspectival analysis has profound implications for the growing number of psychologists working transnationally and for training psychologically literate, culturally competent, and globally acculturated psychologists." Michael Stevens, PhD, DHC, LHD, The Lucian Blaga University of Sibiu, Romania, and The Chicago School of Professional Psychology, USA
