Title: An Ethical Evening: Ethical questions for psychologists

“Should a scientist in 2019 carrying out research on the cognitive effects of very low temperatures rely on data obtained in barbaric experiments from Nazi concentration camps?”

“Should a practicing clinical psychologist give a researcher access to anonymized closed clinical case files that are (a) 5 years old, (b) 50 years old?”

We’ll be confronting an hour’s worth of questions like these. Anyone can voice an opinion, via the moderator. Everyone votes via smartphone and we see opinion move about.
