As you have learned throughout your courses, adherence to ethical principles is paramount in the field of psychology. However, many psychological experiments of the past would not be allowed under today’s standards. Choose an influential experiment in the field of psychology that violated present-day ethical guidelines. The following website (Mental Floss, 2012) may be useful in choosing a study, but you may also choose one that is not listed there: Follow the Rubric attached. Briefly describe the study. Then, taking into consideration the Ethical Principles of Psychologists and Code of Conduct (American Psychological Association, 2002), discuss at least 2 guidelines that were violated and how. Describe how violating these guidelines was or could have been harmful to participants. Given your knowledge of ethical guidelines, re-design the experiment you chose so the same hypothesis could be addressed in an ethical research study. In all sections of your Assignment, particular attention should be paid to the General Principles ( and standards for research ( in the ethical code. Some concentration areas also have their own ethical code, and this should be referred to as well. Addictions: Behavior Analysis: Industrial/Organizational concentration refer to the APA code above. Your paper should be 3–4 pages, not including the title page and reference page. It should include an introduction and conclusion, and you must use at least 3 academic references to support your ideas. References must be in APA format, including in-text citations and a reference list. References American Psychological Association. (2002). Ethical principles of psychologists and code of conduct.

The assignemnt is:

Using information from your text, videos, and learning activities (and your own thoughts) addressing the following scenario in words (4-5 pages): IMAGINE THAT your best friend comes to you for an informal opinion about some unusual symptoms he/she has been experiencing. Choose a disorder for him/her to experience that we have covered in the course. Describe the symptoms of the disorder and the treatment advice you believe is most valid, including the theoretical model. Better papers will include a thorough description of (a) relevant diagnostic criteria, (b) your friend’s human experience with the disorder, (c) the theoretical model recommended (the one you think is best and why – e.g., cognitive-behavioral, psychodynamic, biological, a combination of models you think are appropriate), and (d) a reflection of your changing views of mental health function and dysfunction as a result of what you have learned in the course. Grading criteria for this option are as follows:

Describe your friend’s human experience with the disorder. How does it manifest itself in their life? What effects does it have on their life? 25 points

Incorporate the relevant diagnostic criteria of the particular disorder chosen and be sure to tie it into the friend’s personal experience you describe. 25 points

Treatment advice you would suggest to your friend and the theoretical model that is tied to this treatment. Why do you think this is the best treatment/model? 20 points

Reflect on your changing views of mental health function and dysfunction as a result of course material. Have your views changed or not? What has changed and why? 20 points

The paper should be typed, double-spaced and 4-5 pages in length. 5 points

Structure (flow of paper; 5 points) and Mechanics (spelling, grammar, etc) 5 points}
