The American Psychological Association's (APA) Ethical Principles of Psychologists and Code of Conduct can be compared to the formal structure of a constitution. It is structured with an introduction, a preamble, general principles and specific ethical standards. In the Introduction the document’s intent, organization, procedural considerations, of the Ethics Codes are discussed. The Preamble and General Principles are the goals that should guide psychologists toward the highest ideals of psychology. The actual standards are written in generalizations. If they are ignored or not followed as ethical law by the psychologists they can lose their license to practice. The standards are:
“Standard 1: Resolving Ethical Issues
Standard 2: Competence
Standard 3: Human Relations
Standard 4: Privacy and Confidentiality
Standard 5: Advertising and Other Public Statements
Standard 6: Record Keeping and Fees
Standard 7: Education and Training
Standard 8: Research and Publication
Standard 9: Assessment
Standard 10: Therapy”
