Answer each question in 100 words, must cite references and must be APA formatted.




1. How can you define a dual relationship to a layperson? What prohibitions does the APA Ethics Code place on psychologists regarding dual relationships? Do you agree with the prohibitions? Why or why not?


2. Can you think of an example of a dual relationship between a therapist and client that may not necessarily be unethical?


3. Can anyone else think of any potential issues that could arise from providing mental health services in a rural community?


4. What would be the effect on a psychologist who fails to obtain informed consent prior to providing services to a patient?


5. Describe how you will apply that learning in your daily life, including your work life.


6. Describe what may be unclear to you, and what you would like to learn.

You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.

Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.

Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.

The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
