The Law, Standards, and Ethics in the Practice of Psychology, 2nd Edition, Workbook
This workbook — now revised to include regulatory and legislative updates to the primary text since original publication, and current to April 2009 — was developed as a learning tool and supplement to The Law, Standards, and Ethics in the Practice of Psychology, 2nd Edition (the primary text) and to help readers optimize their use and understanding of the material. The principal audience for this workbook is those who are learning the material in the primary text for graduate courses, for provincial written examinations, and for continuing education requirements. Some of the material in the workbook will be of interest to those who use the primary text for reference purposes.
Each chapter in the workbook provides a set of learning objectives for the related chapter in the primary text. Chapters fall into three categories: those that are general in nature; those that are specific to a given province; and those where some material is appropriate to all provinces and other material is province-specific. The latter chapters include tables indicating the sections (pages) that are appropriate to each province. Of interest to all readers is the highlighting of updates that have occurred since the publication of the main text. Finally, each chapter of the workbook contains a set of multiple-choice questions so that those using the main text in a course, in preparation for provincial examinations, or to meet continuing education requirements can evaluate their understanding of the material.
For the British Columbia, Newfoundland and Labrador, and Ontario governance chapters, the multiple-choice questions are specific to the given province. In other chapters the multiple-choice questions are general in nature (applicable to students and practitioners in all provinces). Where appropriate, in addition to the general questions, there are specific questions for British Columbia and Ontario to help candidates prepare for the written jurisprudence (and ethics) examinations. The concluding section of the workbook includes answers to all multiple-choice questions.
