From the way that I have interrupted that if the participates are forced into going through with the research it could have a very negative effect on the outcome and will cause data to be wrongfully interrupted. The informed consent is necessary for ethical research because it outlines what the researchers are doing and what is expected of the participates. It states what risks that are involved and they are able to back out at any time they wish if they are in fear or just do not want to help out anymore. After they are done with the study the participates need to be debriefed where if they are taking a medication that is being researched they are informed if they received the actual drug or a placebo, also at this time they are given an explanation of the study and the procedures that were involved. I will share with the class that I had my son involved in a drug study for ADHD about 9 years ago; it was for the patch that is offered now.
Second, the participants were deceived. According to ethical code of researches, participants should be completely informed what would take place during the experiment in the inform consent form before the experiment, but the researchers did not properly address all the situations to the participants. The violence was completely not expectable by the participants. From the perspective of ethical issue, it was wrong to conduct this experiment, but from the perspective of research, it is right to conduct this experiment. Therefore, I would say that it is worthy to conduct this experiment because the outcomes of experiment are very useful for the discovery of human behaviors.
We can also do this by studying the nature verses nurture debate and if people are inherently good or evil. Laws protect our rights and freedoms in various ways. They prevent the government from abusing its power against its citizens, provide justice to all people, and protect people from harm. It is clear from learning about these topics that law is an important factor in society and governments. Life without laws could be a very scary thing.
Explain the meaning of the term observation (10 marks) An observation is watching behaviour in a real life setting and taking notes of the observation. Interpretivists prefer observation as it tends to produce qualitative data which is more valid. There are two different types of observation: covert observation which is when the researcher hasn’t told the participants that they’re being observed. The British Sociological association advised you should only use this method when there’s no other way of obtaining the data that the researcher needs. For example: Nigel Fielding used covert observation when researching the national front (far right wing political party) as he believed he would encounter hostility if they knew he was a sociologist.
This is where the code of ethics comes in and that knowing what you can and cannot do while one is studying psychology. When working in the field of psychology, one most know that he or she will not know everything and they most also keep in mind not to be biased, especially when working with people who may not share the same beliefs. The thing is to help people and not make them feel as if they are wrong or have something to hide. The profession is there to help and not to force your opinion and ideas upon them. Another thing that we
➢ It spoils the reputation of the service you are part of providing You may become part of any complaint or disciplinary process, and your actions, or lack of them could be questioned. It will not simply go away! WHAT SHOULD YOU DO IF YOU SUSPECT BAD PRACTICE? Ask yourself these questions to inform your decision how to act. □ What did I see?
A limitation of this study is that, although they accounted for bias in the data from collected studies, they might not have accounted for all the bias or they could have overcompensated. Another limitation might be that, even though the data was collected from scientific literature, it would have probably been better for the authors to conduct all of the research in order to make sure that each study was carried out properly and with consistency. This study is important because, although it is reasoned that handwashing reducing rates
The same ethical rules involving honesty, fairness, and so forth should apply to professionals. So, if it's wrong for ordinary people to steal, cheat, and lie, then it's wrong for professionals to do so as well. Some strengths of the code inspire the members of a profession to behave ethically and make ethical choices. It also disciplines the members when they violate one or more of the code's directives. Some weaknesses of the code are directives included in many codes tent to be too general and too vague.
My ethical blind spot is my belief that motive justifies the method or overconfidence in the process. I rely too much on the system of ethics and to do what it is supposed to do, but I can overcome this by thinking outside of the box and understanding that the system itself is imperfect. It is designed that way intentionally so that it can be adjusted for each individual that follows it. The system is designed to bend not break so that we all come to the same result we just might take a different path to get to it. For example, copy right laws if you use an artist song to make a track of your own but it has pieces of their song in it you must give them credit by posting a disclaimer with it or risk being sued.
Ethical Issues In Social Psychology Research Donna Ware Capella University PSYC3520 Professor Julie Johnson August 19, 2012 Abstract Participants in psychological research from a methodological perspective are sometimes deceptive. The deception is either in the setting, reason or the design of the study. Most researchers believe that methodological deception is okay and that the code of ethics should be revised. There are some concerns of this kind of deception and its’ risk of psychological harm of the participants as well as violating their freedom or independence. So, looking at how some of the ethical issues using deception in research concerns can come about and comparing two studies such as the Milgram’s Study and the Zimbardo Prison Study to determine if deception used was justifiable.
