FERRERO, Andrea. The Impact of the Universal Declaration of Ethical Principles for Psychologists. Psykhe [online]. 2014, vol.23, n.1, pp.1-11. ISSN 0718-2228.

After considering some key professional ethics issues in psychology, this paper analyzes the collective development of the Universal Declaration of Ethical Principles for Psychologists in 2008, and its further effects on professional and training settings. Its goal is to serve as a guide for reviewing ethics codes in psychology or for the development of new codes, considering 4 general principles and their associated ethical values. Based on those principles, each country or region will be able to develop its own professional ethical standards, in a socially, historically, and culturally situated way. The similarity between the principles pointed out in this declaration and those included in the main South American psychology ethics codes is also considered. Finally, the first 2 experiences in the application of this document´s guidelines are presented, one within a professional setting and a more novel one developed for training in psychology.

Palabras clave : psychology; ethics; codes; profession; training.
