    This volume brings the American Psychological Association (APA) Ethics Code to life by rendering the official language of its 102 mandatory standards in plain English and providing illuminating case examples of how the standards apply to psychologists' everyday work. While fictional, these cases portray common situations and help the reader understand how ethical problems can suddenly emerge with able and well-meaning professionals even under the most ordinary of circumstances. The cases illustrate competent problem-solving by psychologists faced with ethical dilemmas in a variety of professional roles as well as instances in which inaction or inappropriate action by psychologists place them and those with whom they work at risk.
