Hello SIOP Members!
Welcome to the Committee for the Advancement of Professional Ethics (CAPE) website. CAPE serves the SIOP community by assessing and supporting the ethics-related professional development needs of I-O psychology professionals.
On this website, you will find useful resources that will assist you in recognizing and navigating ethical dilemmas in your practice, research, and teaching roles. Students will also find foundational information regarding the ethical dimensions of I-O psychology.
Practitioners may find the APA ethics code useful in guiding client interactions. Consider using our engaging tools, such as the Dilemma Stimulus Training Cards, to facilitate ethics-related discussions with your team.
Researchers may find the suggested articles useful when conducting ethics-related research. You may also find it useful to explore our recommended resources for conducting ethically sound research.
Educators may find the CAPE Bingo Game, full of ethical scenarios, to be a fun classroom activity. The ethics course syllabi and the suggested articles will also be helpful to those developing new ethics courses.
CAPE encourages all SIOP Members to explore SIOP’s official code of ethics: the American Psychological Association’s (2016) Ethical Principles of Psychologists and Code of Conduct. Explore the information on our website regarding the code’s ongoing revision and SIOP’s responses to the revision. CAPE will keep the SIOP community updated on the code’s revision and invite community member input when draft versions of the revised code become available.
If you have any comments or suggestions for us, please use the “contact us” button below to share your thoughts. Thank you for taking the time to explore CAPE’s website and for your interest in ethics within the I-O psychology field.
