Report of the Ethics Committee, 2010
American Psychologist, v66 n5 p393-403 Jul-Aug 2011
In accordance with the bylaws of the American Psychological Association (APA), the Ethics Committee reports regularly to the membership regarding the number and types of ethics matters investigated and the major programs undertaken. In 2010, ethics adjudication, ethics education and consultation, and special projects were activities of the Ethics Committee. Throughout 2010, the Ethics Committee and the Ethics Office continued to develop and expand their educative and consultative activities. The Ethics Committee and the Ethics Office provided ethics consultation to APA members, the public, psychological associations, and licensing boards. The Ethics Committee reviewed and responded to requests for written ethics consultation on complex ethical matters. Some of the many issues addressed in 2010 included psychologists' consulting to reality TV programs, executive coaching, release of test data, billing and the use of collection agencies, forensic and custody matters, appropriate termination of psychotherapy, exceptions to confidentiality and mandatory reporting, accepting gifts from clients, issues related to psychologists working in military settings, providing psychological services over the Internet, and psychologists' use of social networking sites. This paper outlines the report of the Ethics Committee. (Contains 6 tables and 4 footnotes.)
