What impact do these issues have on the field of psychological testing? Privacy and confidentiality are ethical concerns about psychological testing. Ethical codes have been established to protect participants by prohibiting clinicians or researchers from referencing or discussing any test results "outside the context and purpose for which the results were obtained" (Hogan, 2007, p. 592). According to Hogan (2007), the only exceptions are if the participant intends to harm his or herself or others or if required by legal mandate to disclose the test results (p. 592). Informed consent is another primary ethical concern for psychological testing.
How have the principles of equality, diversity and anti discriminatory practice been applied to work undertaken? The individuals you work with need to be recognised as separate individualsfrom others, they need to be treated as they are and not compared to otherpeople. Equality is not treating everyone the same way but treating them aswho they are without discriminating against them. Therefore even though the individuals you work with are aggressive andabusive you need to carry out individual risk assessments and not makeassumptions or stereotype them. K2.
They should not be indifferent to the fruits of their ideas. They should forgo experiments that are risky or unethical. More than that, they should foster benign spin-offs, but resist dangerous or threatening applications. They should raise public consciousness of hazards to environment or
Protecting the public interest includes protecting clients, creditors, governments, employers, etc. This principle calls for resolving conflict by remembering that the CPA’s responsibility is to the public while serving the client and employers interest. A CPA must have integrity so that they have the public trust has been served in reference to the client’s confidence and will not use the public trust for personal gain. Due care calls for continued improvement of competency and quality of service, any CPA who performs professional services without having the necessary skills is in violations of the due care standard. By continuing education to maintain ones CPA certificate helps meet this standard.
On a general basis, it is necessary to have the consent of the participants before they take part in the study, and they should be given all the information they need to know before they can agree. However in some cases deception is required to gain the results of the study. They must also be able to withdraw at any point before the results are used or published, and have their privacy kept with their results remaining confidential. These ethical considerations exist in order to protect the participants from harm and ensure that the research does not permanently affect their lives negatively. Sometimes there are other factors that need to be taken into account that mean that not all ethical considerations can be taken.
If these consequences aren’t taken into account innocent subjects may be harmed, bad reputations can be put on yourself or your affiliates, and other various negative results. Moreover something else to be taken into consideration when doing social research is to always get the voluntary consent of your subject without being deceptive about the study. This is extremely important unless the research is unobtrusive in which the method is strictly observations and don’t have any effect on the people studied. I find being truthful about the study upfront being a valid consideration because if you were to being in subjects who feel as though they have been fooled or not told the truth your research study may go awry. In article 4, Men as Success Objects and Women as Sex objects, the research was unobtrusive and really had no possible outcome for negative consequences besides possibly disturbing results.
Confidentiality is based on: Privacy, which is related to the notion of respect for the person - people have a right to decide how much information about themselves should be shared with others, and public interest. Keeping information secret means that it should not be discussed in any circumstances other than with the person the information was meant for. Confidentiality is not only a matter of keeping information secret. It also rquires that anyone keeping information in the course of performing his or her work will not use the ifnormation given for personal advantage or fo the advantage of anyone else. In care settings when situations of stress or need occur, service users might need to share personal information with their carers.
In order to be able to work in an effective way you need to be able to reflect on your work to identify your strengths and weaknesses. Reflection should not be used to undermine your confidence in your own work you should use it in a constructive way to identify areas which require improvement. Being able to recognise areas of your work that need improvement is not an indication of poor practise it is an indication if excellent practise. Any worker in social care who believe they do not need to improve their practise and develop and add to their skills and understanding are not demonstrating good and competent practise. Look at the way you approach the situation or your work.
Confidentiality of a client can be a challenge when switching the role of an advocate to become the mediator. As an advocate there will be information known that could influence the success of the mediator. Personal Philosophy in Planned Parenthood The most important aspect to have when working as an advocator and a mediator would be self-awareness. An individual needs to know what possible biases may be present within him or herself. An individual needs to leave personal values, opinions, and personal biases completely out of the
Whereas Interpretivists would favour the Field experiment because it doesn’t not take a scientific approach and concentrates on producing qualitative data – information that can be captured that isn’t numerical, can be obtained by getting in depth information on someone’s thoughts, feelings, motivations, attitudes and values through participant observation, unstructured interviews, diaries and letters – they give an insight on what other people are actually feeling and what it is like to be in their shoes. With the Laboratory experiment there are practical and ethical issues. In practice it would be impossible to identify and
