After reading Chapter 1 in your text, the APA ethical principles articles Ethical Principles of Psychologists and Code of Conduct (paying particular attention to Standard 8) and Guidelines for Ethical Conduct in the Care and use of Nonhuman Animals in Research, as well as viewing the video Obedience and Ethics: Benefits and Costs of Psychological Conformity Studies, analyze and critique the principles introduced and applied in the various sources. Summarize what you feel are the ethical pros and cons of Milgramâ€™s research. Include in your post definitions and a discussion of terms such as, informed consent, confidentiality, deception, debriefing, and institutional review board. Find an additional example of a past research study that has raised ethical concerns. Evaluate the ethical pros and cons of that study and explain your reasoning for each aspect.
Your initial post should be 250-300 words. Utilize a minimum of two peer-reviewed sources that were published within the last 10 years and are documented in APA style, as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center.
Guided Response: Review several of your classmatesâ€™ posts. Provide a substantive response to at least two of your peers. Do you agree or disagree with their analysis of the ethical issues in Milgramâ€™s experiment and in the other study they chose? Explain why, and support your assertions with properly cited evidence from scholarly sources.
