CE Credit Course: Ethics

“Ethics and Values in I-O Psychology”

Presented by Joel Lefkowitz, PhD, ABPP


This course was originally presented at the 2011 SIOP Annual Conference in Chicago, IL. We have synched the original audio, visual, and slides from the presentation and now offer it as an online continuing education (CE) credit module with 3 CE credits available.*


The course includes 3 hours of content, broken down into 5 units, for viewing at your own pace. A pre-test and post-test are required. A certificate of completion/verification of credit is awarded after all five units are viewed and both tests are successfully completed.


$75 (This course is available only to SIOP members.)


This workshop provides a guide for understanding ethical and unethical behavior, and includes a discussion of the cognitive and motivational components of ethical behavior and a general decision-making strategy for coping with ethical dilemmas. Unlike other workshops, this one takes an I-O perspective. For example, the topic is approached not just from the standpoint of guidance for individual professional behavior, but from the standpoint of a scientist-practitioner who needs to understand the nature of organizational misconduct and how to promote more ethical organizations. Participants will learn and practice applying a model of ethical reasoning to ethical challenges. This intermediate-level seminar encompass discussion of issues relevant to guiding one's own professional behavior, as well as approaching the topic from the standpoint of a scientist-practitioner who may be called upon to develop and implement organizational policies in the area.


Joel is emeritus faculty at Baruch College, CUNY, and is a well-known researcher, author, and practitioner in the area of professional ethical behavior. For a complete bio, please click here.
