Analyzation & Suggestions of Ethical Considerations to Address when Employing Behavioral Approaches A vital association with concerns of any medical field is ethical principles. In which, there are sub fields of ethics just as with medical, but pertaining to psychiatry and therapeutic measures, there are a variety of American Psychological Association (APA) ethical standards that must be upheld to protect clinicians and patients. Sometimes the best of intentions can become an ethical dilemma. Which adds to why it is also important that when treating a human being that is already physically and mentally fragile, to be properly educated, trained and cautious of the ethical guidelines and uphold the code of conduct. The number one ethical code that I consider a golden rule is the oath of practicing any form of medicine is not causing any harm. “Psychologists take reasonable steps to avoid harming their clients/patients, students, supervisees, research participants, organizational clients, and others with whom they work, and to minimize harm where it is foreseeable and unavoidable” APA, 2002 & Haman & Hollon, 2009. I believe this guideline is extremely important, since it lets your patient, as those around you know you truly want the best for their health, because in many time even individual do not understand what that might be.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
