In a 7- to 10-page scholarly research paper, evaluate one of the enforceable standards in the Ethics Code (Standard 2: Competency) that can be found on pages 340-353 as it applies to an area of your specialization (I/O Psychology). The enforceable standards are in the second section of the book, Chapters 4–13. Along with the text, use a minimum of five scholarly articles taken from peer-reviewed journals. (To be Attached)

In the paper, you should evaluate the Ethics Code and how each section on the standard you chose will affect the ethical decision-making as it applies to your chosen topic. (The ethical standard that I have chosen is Standard 2 Competency)- you would cover each of the substandard within that Ethical Standard. A good approach is to do the following:

-Present each substandard in order. Briefly describe the substandard.

– Present examples of how that substandard relates to your specialization (my specialization is I/O Psychology).

You will synthesize the information from the articles and the course readings. This will be the basis for the majority of your paper (Attached-please use the attached articles). In a one-page section, please analyze the relationship between your personal values (beliefs, possible biases, morals, etc.) and the professional codes specifically related to ethical decision making. (APA Ethics Code is also attached-
