 Taking Stock and Looking Forward

Show Summary Details


In this chapter we offer a summary and synthesis based on the sections of the Handbook, present topics and issues related to psychological ethics that have recently received and will likely continue to receive significant attention worldwide, and address emerging challenges, such as the feasibility of a universal code of ethics, given global events and forces. We describe and evaluate the progress that psychology and psychologists have made in developing an ethical scientific and applied practice, and provide several recommendations on how best to ensure the international adherence to the ethical principles and standards of conduct in the various activities in which psychologists around the world are engaged.
