Project #33905 - psychology

A fellow church member asked a psychologist if he could do a free assessment on another church member, named Carolyn, about whom the first church member was concerned. The psychologist agreed to do the free assessment on Carolyn, who could not otherwise afford to see a psychologist.  The psychologist approached Carolyn after church and invited her to come to his office the following week. The psychologist then completed an IQ test on Carolyn and determined that Carolyn was mildly mentally retarded. He helped Carolyn apply for disability benefits. Since Carolyn was unemployed and the psychologist believed she could not easily find employment due to her mental retardation, he spoke to Carolyn’s pastor about her and arranged for Carolyn to move in with a family from the church—a family who would give Carolyn room and board in exchange for house cleaning and chores. Desperate, Carolyn made the move. Through this family, everyone in the church learned about Carolyn’s impairments and began to treat her like a child. Carolyn resented this treatment and eventually fled the home she was living in as well as the church. She landed in a homeless shelter and it is not known what happened to her from this point onward. Your task: Evaluate this situation in detail from the perspective of the APA Code of Ethics. Specifically, evaluate this case in relation to each of the General Principles of the APA Ethics Code, as well as the standards related to multiple relationships and informed consent that apply. Include a brief discussion of any additional concerns you might have regarding the legal and socio-cultural implications of the psychologist and the client in this case.  Conclude with a brief discussion about how the ethical concerns which you described might be different if the psychologist had been working with Carolyn as part of his caseload in a community mental health clinic instead of a private practice setting.   (7-10 pages).
