Title: Presenting the revised Singapore Psychological Society’s Code of Ethics
‘Ethics is knowing the difference between what you have a right to do and what is right to do” Potter Stewart, United States Supreme Court. One of the key determinants in raising the standards of any profession is a comprehensive Code of Ethics. It becomes more imperative for Psychologists to be guided by a comprehensive Code owing to the impact we can have on the individual, the family, and the society at large. In Singapore, the Code of Ethics was last developed in 2002. As the field of psychology has locally flourished in the past two decades, SPS recognised the need to update the Code too. The revision of the Code over a two-year period, was undertaken by representatives from several government and private organizations. Notably, the Code has embraced a multicultural stance in order to best reflect the diverse landscape of Singapore. This talk will focus on the major revisions of the Code and the timeline for implementation.
