This chapter reviewing the status of psychological ethics will be organized around a coherent concept of the level of receptivity to psychology in the Chinese societies. The common feature of this unified direction of progression of psychology includes three core components. First, the regions’ governmental and circumstantial conditions surrounding statutory registration, or the lack thereof, and regulation of psychological practice; second, the strength and the role of the psychological associations in situ; and finally, the maturity of the marketplace in these regions for consumption of professional psychological services. The readers will be able to note the diversities that exist among these regions while not losing sight of Chinese societies as a collective.

Keywords: psychological ethics; Chinese societies; statutory registration; psychological associations; regulation of practice
