Current and emerging ethical issues in psychology: Canada

[Speaker] Sinclair, Carole:1
1:Independent Practice (Canada)

This presentation will provide a summary of the ethical issues most frequently identified by Canadian psychologists as needing more dialogue and attention in psychological practice, research and teaching in Canada. In recent surveys conducted in preparation for revisions to the Canadian Code of Ethics for Psychologists, those issues were related primarily to: the impact of globalization, an increase in collaborative forms of practice, the substantial increase in the use of technology, the role of the non-rational in ethical decision making, and ethical obligations to persons involved in mandated or externally-contracted assessments and services. Connection of these issues to the changing social and political context in Canada will be explored, and possible future emerging issues will be identified.
