Psychologists should:

  • Debrief research participants at the conclusion of their participation, in order to inform them of the outcomes and nature of the research, to identify any unforeseen harm, discomfort , or misconceptions, and in order to arrange for assistance as needed.
  • Take particular care when discussing outcomes with research participants, as seemingly evaluative statements may carry unintended weight.


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