Cain, Harry I.; Harkness, Jennifer L.; Smith, Angela L.; Markowski, Edward Mel
Journal of Marital and Family Therapy, v29 n1 p47-57 Jan 2003
Family therapists are expected to engage in ethical and responsible research, while maintaining rigorous ethical standards and adhering to federal regulations that require protection for research participants. We present a short historical overview of the significant events and ethical controversies leading to the formulation of current regulations in human subject research and review. Federal regulations and guidelines, including issues of informed consent, special populations, and conflict of interest are reviewed. A short list of recommendations to assist family therapists in staying abreast of contemporary research protocol is provided.
