The legal landscape is perpetually changing. Psychologists must remain abreast of these changes to avoid
potentially damaging issues to individuals and careers. In this assignment, you will consider the current
federal and state legal issues discussed in the last two modules and their influence on psychology ethics
(not on HIPPA).
Choose either a current federal or a current state issue which is influenced by and/or is influencing
psychology ethics (not on HIPPA).
Write a paper (1,300 words) in which you discuss the influence of the selected issue. Include the following
in your paper:
1. A detailed explanation of the issue.
2. A discussion of how the issue influences psychology ethics from an objective (scholarly) perspective. (at
least one scholarly reference must be used to support this)
3. A discussion of how the issue influences psychology ethics from a subjective (personal) perspective.
4. A discussion of how, if at all, the issue is influenced by current psychology ethics.
