Analyze the ethics difficulties in responding to a request for services

Assume that a major component of an undergraduate course in child growth and development you are teaching involves the Signature Assignment. This assignment requires you to relate the Eriksonian stages to autobiographical data and biographical information of family members. One of your students refuses to disclose anything personal and claims you are in violation of ethics Standard 7.04. Since you are unwilling to change the requirement, the student files a complaint with the department chair. Create a transcript of the dialogue between you and the department chair, Dr. Kweigg, who supports the student. Examine the possible conflicts between your assignment criteria and Standard 7.04, providing specific examples to support your reasoning for not changing the assignment. Explain how you will resolve the situation, given the department chair agrees with the student who filed the complaint. Note that besides multiple relationships, there is at least one other key ethics worry in this scenario. First notice a small contradiction in the story. The caretaker is at first said to live in the psychologist’s home, and later it is said that the caretaker lives in her own apartment in a building elsewhere from the psychologist’s house. This small contradiction does not affect the ethics aspects of the scenario. Note also that since the caretaker has been caring for the psychologist’s children for nine years, it is likely that the psychologist has met the caretaker’s daughter, in non-psychology settings, and likely has some sort of a “friendship” relationship with the daughter. Therefore there is a potential multiple relationship between the daughter and the psychologist. And there is a potential different kind of multiple relationship between the caregiver and the psychologist. Be sure to address both potential multiple relationships . Note that at the time that the psychologist is asked to write the letter, the psychologist has never treated the caregiver’s daughter, and has not interviewed the caregiver’s daughter to do a psychological assessment of the daughter. This raises a couple of possibilities in which the psychologist could write the letter, neither of which is specified in the scenario. The psychologist could interview and assess the daughter, and then write the letter. Without interviewing and assessing the daughter, the psychologist could write the letter Note that each alternative creates different kinds of multiple relationships.. Note also, that writing the letter without interviewing and assessing the daughter would be addressed in standards of the ethics code other than the standard on multiple relationships. . Be sure to analyze the ethics of writing the letter in each possibility, with and without interviewing the daughter. The article by Ensminger and Thomas (2013) titled Writing letters to help patients with service and support animals appears to be a red herring. the article is not pertinent to multiple relationship issues or to the issue of writing the letter without assessing the daughter. I recommend you do not use the article in your essay for this psychology research paper. In your argument, you must demonstrate that the autobiographical component is necessary to achieve the stated course outcomes. You also need to explain how this requirement was clearly identified in the course description. You are expected to provide the opposing argument from Dr. Kweigg. Support your assignment with at least three scholarly or professional resources. In addition to these specified resources, other appropriate scholarly resources, including older articles, may be included
