Psychologists should

  • Challenge colleagues who appear to have engaged in ethical misconduct, and/or consider bringing allegations of such misconduct to the attention of those charged with the responsibility to investigate them, particularly when members of the public appear to have been, or may be, affected by the behaviour in question.
  • When bringing allegations of misconduct by a colleague, do so without malice and with no breaches of confidentiality other than those necessary to the proper investigatory processes.
  • When the subject of allegations of misconduct themselves, take all reasonable steps to assist those charged with the responsibility to investigate them.

NB The above standards are based on the Code of Ethics and Conduct published by BPSin 2006.
