Ethical practice

Ethics is “concerned with that which is deemed acceptable in human behaviour, with what is good or bad, right or wrong in human conduct in pursuit of goals and aims” (Reber & Reber, 2001, p. 251). When considered in professional practice, ethics are the “principles which define morally acceptable conduct within the field of psychology” (Matsumoto, 2009, p. 185). In the professional space there are many theories and guides that can be used to support ethical practice, these include codes of practice, guidelines, principles and more.
