We have provided the reader with a resource for applied ethical decision-making for use in clinical, educational, and research settings. The Rehabilitation Psychologist using this book will have a choice of utilizing a Quick Reference guide including pro-con positions regarding possibleresolutions and a tabular summary of the varied case examples presented, or making use of more detailed discussion of the ethical concepts pertinent to each case. The most important aspect of this book is inclusion of psycho-social context information for each case example. This critical factorallows the reader to understand the flow of events and other factors influencing the actions of the key stakeholders, thereby facilitating the ethical decision-making process.The mix of case examples is intentionally broad-based, including ample clinical practice situations, along with challenges found in educational and research settings. There is also variety among the case examples, with two detailed scenarios in each chapter, along with two briefer learning exerciseswith focused summaries. The reader is challenged to analyze each case and compare the results with the preferred resolution proposed by the authors.Finally, at the end of the book, the reader has access to a list of ethics-relevant reading resources. These resources are divided into categorical domains that will assist with literature searches and further research into applied ethics. The authors trust that this book will serve as a preparatoryexperience for those psychologists studying for the Rehabilitation Psychology specialty board exam, as well as trainees and clinicians at all levels who desire an applied approach to utilizing the APA Ethics Code as an invaluable guide to everyday professional practice.
