In the United States, the population diversity continues to increase representing individuals from multiple identities including ethnic groups, religious affiliations, and sexual orientations. As the population diversity shifts, representation of providers from diverse backgrounds is lagging. Recent data from the American Psychological Association (APA, 2018) show that over 80% of psychologists identify as White. This webinar will provide a basis application of the APA Ethical Principles and Code of Conduct to specific ethical dilemmas in research and practice involving diverse populations. The information will be useful in better understanding how to engage in multicultural competent practice and conduct research with diverse populations.
