this chapter is concerned with ethics in general, and more specifically with the issue of ethics for the forensic psychologist. now that forensic psychology is a regulated profession, there is a much greater focus on the behaviour of its professionals, especially as they may be working with particularly vulnerable members of society. the content of this chapter will help you consider where your own views and behaviour stand in relation to ethics, and to form a basic model for thinking about dilemmas in practice. at its most basic, ethics is concerned with the process of making choices, be those choices about whether or not to drink Fair Trade tea, or whether a nation should include the death penalty in its legal system.
