Sport psychology practitioners (SPPs) work in an environment that can often encourages ethical dilemmas by itself. In this assignment, you will examine this very complex issue by reading an article that highlights how an SPP’s work can be impacted by those who signs the paycheck. You will examine the ethical dilemmas posed by working with clients, who are considered employees of an organization, when the organization, itself, has hired the SPP.
For this assignment, read the following article from the Argosy University online library resources:
Moore, Z. (2003). Ethical dilemmas in sport psychology: Discussion and
recommendations for practice. Professional Psychology: Research
& Practice, 34(6), 601–610.
After reading the article, answer the following questions:
- When hired to work with employees of an organization, who, ultimately, is your client?
- How do the eight areas highlighted by Moore (2003) differ within the context of working with athletes in private practice and working with athletes as a hired professional through a sport organization and/or team?
- Based on the information in the article by Moore (2003), what steps should an SPP take to assure trust and confidence from both an employee and an employer?
