Ethical Guidelines for Forensic Psychology Professionals.

Part of the complication relates to learning about varied aspects of the legal system and then determining how psychological guidelines and principles fit within this system. This week’s readings provide a number of excellent guidelines for use when conducting forensic psychological assessments. The guidelines were developed by forensic professionals with many years of experience and are meant to provide a standard for working in various sectors of the legal system.
In this Discussion, you will apply your knowledge and understanding of the American Psychology-Law Society Forensic Specialty Guidelines (AP-LS) pertaining to ethical issues within forensic psychology. You will consider the question: How do forensic psychology evaluations differ from clinical psychology evaluations? In addition, you will consider which of the guidelines you may find most professionally and personally challenging, and how you might responsibly and realistically overcome those challenges (for example, if you lived in a small town, you might experience challenges in avoiding dual relationships). You will also review your own state’s or region’s guidelines from your psychology boards to understand if there are differences between the expectations of forensic psychology professionals and clinical psychology professionals conducting assessments.
To prepare
Review the Learning Resources.
Review state laws and case laws pertaining to ethical guidelines for forensic assessment utilizing the Specialty Guidelines for Forensic Psychology listed in your Learning Resources.
Review your own state laws (or local laws if you are an international student) pertaining to forensic assessments and the differences between forensic and clinical professionals’ use of assessments.

What Would You Do? A Question of Ethics

It was 2:00 a.m. They had been working since 6:00 p.m. and still had several hours’ work remaining.
“Oh, the misery,” groaned Tyler, pretending to slit his own throat with his finger as an Exacto knife. “If I never see another photo of a veggie burger, it will be too soon. Why didn’t we choose a more interesting product?”
“I think it had something to do with someone wanting to promote a healthy alternative to greasy hamburgers,” Jeannie replied sarcastically.
“Right,” said Tyler, “I don’t know what I could have been thinking. Speaking of greasy hamburgers, is anyone else starving? Anybody want to order pizza or something?”
“No one will deliver up here this late,” Margeaux replied, “but I have a quiche that I could heat up.”
“Fancy,” Tyler quipped.
“You wish,” Margeaux said. “It came out of a box.”
“Sure, that sounds great, thanks,” Jeannie said. “I’m hungry too.”
“It doesn’t have any meat in it, does it?” asked Madhukar. “I don’t eat meat.”
“Nope, it’s a cheese and spinach quiche,” Margeaux said.
Tyler and Margeaux went off to the kitchen to prepare the food. Tyler took the quiche, still in its box, from the fridge. “Uh-oh,” he said. “My roommate is a vegetarian, and he won’t buy this brand because it has lard in the crust. Better warn Madhukar. He’s a Hindu, so I imagine it’s pretty important to him not to eat certain animal products.”
“Shhh!” said Margeaux, “I don’t have anything else to offer him, and he’ll never know the difference anyway. Just pretend you didn’t notice that.”
“Okay,” Tyler said. “It’s your kitchen.”

Discussion Questions

1. What exactly are Margeaux’s ethical obligations to Madhukar in this situation? Why? Is it more important to feed a hungry student or potentially exacerbate it by withholding the only food available?
2. Does the fact that Tyler is not the host relieve him of all ethical responsibility in this case?
3. Does gender play any role in this cultural encounter?
4. How does this situation bring up uncertainty avoidance?
5. Does power distance perhaps play a role here?
6. Who, if anyone, might you criticize for acting ethnocentrically?
