PASMANIK, Diana y WINKLER, María Inés . Searching for Orientation: Guidelines for Teaching Professional Ethics in Psychology in a Context with a PostModern Emphasis. Psykhe [online]. 2009, vol.18, n.2, pp. 37-49. ISSN 0718-2228. doi: 10.4067/S0718-22282009000200003.
Previous survey's results suggest that Chilean psychologists prefer to make ethical decisions based on their personal judgment and professional experience, and place less value on the utilization of a Professional Code of Ethics (Alvear, Pasmanik, Winkler, & Olivares, 2008). With this background, information was obtained in order to position the teaching of professional ethics in the transformation that is currently being experienced in higher education, and criteria for decision making on teaching ethics at the undergraduate level were also sought. Some of the approaches to ethics education in psychology are presented and discussed, and guidelines are proposed for deciding what, when and how to teach ethics in psychology.
