ALVEAR P, Katherine; PASMANIK V, Diana; WINKLER M, María Inés e OLIVARES E, Bárbara. Post-Modern Codes? : Psychologist's Opinions About the Chilean Psychologist's Association Ethics Code. Ter Psicol [online]. 2008, vol.26, n.2, pp. 215-228. ISSN 0718-4808. doi: 10.4067/S0718-48082008000200008.
The results of the application of a questionnaire design to access to the opinión of Chilean Psychologists about the Code of Ethics Code and their propensity to abide by it are presented. The sampling was obtained through a non random survey, by self selection, and was integrated by 170 psychologists graduated in more than 20 different universities, preferably young adults that work in a wide variety of professional fields. The results show that the professionals that work as clinical psychologists and are members of the Chilean Psychologist's Association, tend to more strongly abide by the norms of the association, in comparison with those that work in other áreas of the profession. The conclusión is that both the postmodern context as well as the diversification of professional roles obligates to rethink the ethic dimensión in the exercise of the profession at the present time.
