Ethics and Standards in Interpersonal Psychotherapy

Whether in a hospital or private practice setting, Clinical Psychologists must establish behaviors and actions acceptable for their professional practice. As such, the American Psychological Association Ethics Code outlines the responsibilities of psychologists to protect those receiving services as well as protecting the Psychologist providing the service (EFPA, n.d.). As you consider your clinical professional practice, think about any ethical concerns you might have, as well as any concerns that might also need to be thought about, when working with diverse populations. What cultural aspects might you want to consider?
