Course Description: This course explores the origins and development of psychological thought, research, and practice in relation to its socio-historical and ethical contexts. It investigates the changing themes in the history and philosophy of scientific and ethical thought, and evaluates reasoning, argument, and ethical decision-making in psychology. Evidence-based practice has been identified as a core ethical issue in psychological practice. Framed within the "scientist-practitioner" model, it evaluates the efficacy of psychological interventions. Students examine the relationships between theory, psychological measurement, and ethical responsibility in research and practice; develop research and ethics proposals; and critically analyze the assumptions underlying different approaches to psychological research and evidence-based practice.
