Keynote: Psychology and social responsibility: Some merits and demerits

View More

Abstract:
Many ethics codes in psychology make reference to the discipline's social responsibility. The CPA Code, for instance, has "Responsibility to Society" as one of its four core principles. Both the CPA and the APA Codes refer to international law as a guiding value.
Nevertheless psychology has been found on both sides of controversial issues. Race is a key example. At Ellis Island psychometrists used the skills they had honed with the Army Alpha and Beta tests to guide immigration policies leading to outrageous stereotyping of racial, national, and religious groups (Russian Jews, Irish Catholics).
On the other hand, psychologists were involved in de-segregating schools; the work of Kenneth and Mamie Clark informed the U.S. Supreme Court in Brown versus the Board of Education, which found that separate education is inherently unequal education.
Among other social issues, psychologists have worked for equal marriage (and adoption policies) in both the U.S. and Canada; APA and CPA have taken stands against the death penalty. As a consequence of psychologists' involvement in "enhanced interrogation" at Guantanamo Bay, psychological associations have adopted anti-torture stances in line with international law.
These and other aspects of the interface between psychology and society will be discussed in this talk.
