Each chapter includes case studies for practicing ethical decision-making, and a reflective journal to provide an opportunity for awareness on personal motives and biases relevant to making ethical choices. Written primarily for students in professional psychology graduate programs, the book is also ideal for anyone preparing to practice in Canada or for experienced psychologists seeking to maintain or enhance their ethical knowledge, skills, and integrity.
