Readings The Story of Psychology. To prepare for this unit’s discussions, please read or review the following:

The APA’s “Ethical Principles of Psychologists and Code of Conduct.”
Several areas within psychology are potentially subject to misuse. Among these are psychological testing for intelligence, educational tests for placement and classification of students, psychological tactics for advertising and persuasion, and the creation of false memories by well-meaning psychotherapists. Of course, many more exist.
Pick one of these issues or a different one that you are particularly interested in, and discuss the actual or potential misuse.· Discuss whether or not you believe the safeguards outlined in the APA Ethical Principles of Psychologists and Code of Conduct are sufficient to protect the public. If not, discuss measures that might be needed beyond the code of conduct.
Suggest any enhancements or additions to the APA code that might be beneficial to consumers of psychology.
Use correct APA format
Your paper should include an introduction, a body, and a conclusion. Also, support your answers with the course’s readings and at least two scholarly journal articles. The article’s purpose is to support your positions, claims, and observations, in addition to your textbook.
ProQuest and EBSCOhost are great sites to find resources. Also, write in a concise and logical, using excellent grammar and style techniques. Additionally, the quality of your writing dictates grading criteria. On the other hand, if you use direct quotes from books or articles, place the words you copied (use parenthesis) and cite in-line.
The quotes should be complete sentences (no more, less) and should be incorporated in your essay to illustrate your ideas. Please, cite your sources in a clickable reference list at the end. Also, do not copy without providing proper attribution (quotation marks and in-line citations). Also, write an essay format, not in bullet form, numbering, or another list format. It would be best if you use your own words. Lastly, proofread your work and run it through Grammarly for thorough confirmation.
