Chose a psychological researcher that you believe has done some unethical things in their research. Bear in mind that their research may have taken place before research standards were clarified and enforced. Their methodology may have led to the development of ethical principles. You can choose any researcher, though some likely candidates are listed below:
Stanley Milgram, John B. Watson, B. F. Skinner, Martin Seligman, Phillip Zimbardo, the “Monster Study”
Give specific examples of the researcher’s unethical behavior and for each example identify which ethical principle may have been violated. Start with an explanation of your researcher’s topic and methodology then specify how he/she violated ethical principles. Finally, make suggestions on how to improve their work. Design a research study that may get at some of the same information while not violating ethical standards.
Your critical thinking essay should be 2-5 pages long with a 12-point font.
