Professor's Book Bound for Publication in Chinese
December 11, 2008 — Chongqing University Press in the Sichuan Province of China will publish "Ethical Conflicts in Psychology, Fourth Edition" in Chinese.
The landmark textbook was edited by Donald N. Bersoff, professor of law and director of the Earle Mack School of Law's Law and Psychology Program.
Ensuring that psychologists understand the ethical constraints that apply to their work is essential for protecting patients, Bersoff said, adding that the use of the Internet as a tool for clinical work, research and testing has created a host of new issues.
“It may be that the Chinese are interested in such emerging issues,” said Bersoff, who is a nationally known expert on legal and ethical issues in mental health, developmental disabilities and education, as well as ethics and the law.
He developed the nation’s second joint law and psychology program through Johns Hopkins University and the University of Maryland School of Law and directed the J.D.-Ph.D. Program in Law and Psychology offered by Villanova University School of Law and the Department of Clinical & Health Psychology at MCP Hahnemann University before coming to Earle Mack School of Law.
