MANAGING ETHICS IN A PROFESSION AND THE SCOPE OF PRACTICE OF THE INDUSTRIAL PSYCHOLOGIST
Ethics can be defined as the principles and standards that guide a profession and its members in their interactions with internal and external stakeholders. The purpose of Professional Ethics is to prevent abuse of power, promote responsible use of power and to instil trust in the profession. Managing ethics is about preventing decent people from doing stupid things. Building a ethical professions required structures and practitioners with an ethics competence. In March 2016 the Executive Committee of the Board of Psychology were mandated by the HPCSA to deal with ethical related matters and to review the Ethical Rules for psychologists. A Ethics task team were established in January 2017 by the HPCSA which included SIOPSA as a stakeholder to develop its own code of ethics for the profession of Industrial Psychology. New Scope of Practice regulations are also being developed for the respective registration categories of psychologists. The purpose of the new regulations will be to address numerous complaints made against psychologists, who have been practising outside the scope of practice of their registered category.
The following will be addressed during the workshop:
