Study of rural Canadian psychologists' ethics - implications for Australia

Research about the professional ethical issues faced by psychologists working in rural Canada has implications for psychologists in rural and remote Australia, according to a Charles Sturt University (CSU) PhD graduate.

Dr Judi Malone, a psychologist from Alberta, Canada, who studied in the School of Psychology at CSU in Bathurst, undertook an in depth interpretive study consisting of a series of three interviews with each of 20 practising psychologists from across rural Canada to explore their experience of professional ethical issues.

“The main research question I wanted to answer was, ‘what ethical issues arise for you as a practising rural psychologist and how do you deal with these?’,” Dr Malone said.
