ON CALL with the LACPA ETHICS COMMITTEE
The LACPA Ethics Committee and its members provide consultation through education. Members of the Ethics Committee are all psychologists who have significant experience with the application of the APA Code of Ethics. We do not offer legal advice nor can a specific course of action be suggested for your situation. It is recommended the advice of an attorney be sought before making any decision. The LACPA Ethics Committee works collaboratively on many calls in order to provide the best possible consultation.
For an ethics referral, call the LACPA office Monday through Thursday 9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. and Friday 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. to request a personal and confidential consultation at: (818) 905-0410.
