Committee Focuses on Professional Ethics

SIOP’s executive board approved formation of a Committee for the Advancement of Professional Ethics (CAPE) in In April 2017. Deirdre Knapp is the committee chair and other members include Joe AllenGeorge BanksJames GrandPaul GreenAmy Grubb, and Joel Lefkowitz. Rodney Lowman, serving on the recently announced APA Ethics Code Revision Task Force (ECTF) will also serve in an advisory capacity.

CAPE’s agenda is to:

  • Develop and/or share resources targeted to I-O graduate education in ethical research and practice
  • Develop and/or share resources targeted to I-O continuing professional education in ethical matters, including promoting inclusion of ethics-related programming at the annual conference, inclusion of ethical decision-making thought pieces (e.g., case studies) in SIOP communications (e.g., Newsbriefs, website, TIP), and self-study resources
  • Consult with the Executive Board on relevant SIOP policies (e.g., conflict of interest)
  • Serve as a source of input and response team to proposed changes to ethics-related standards (e.g., the APA ethics code)

Members of CAPE will be staffing a table at the 2018 Conference Committee Zone, located in the Exhibit Hall on Thursday, April 19, 12-1 pm; Friday April 20, 10:30-11:30; and Saturday, April 21, 11-12 (Riverwalk B). They invite conference attendees to stop by and test their ethics IQ or discuss dilemmas they face.
