Ethics Consultation Services

The MPA Ethics Committee provides consultation services to MPA member psychologists who have questions related to ethical issues or dilemmas that may arise in clinical, consulting, academic, or other areas of psychological practice.

Consultations are provided by an MPA Ethics Committee member by phone. All consultations are discussed anonymously by the full committee at its monthly meeting. If there is additional feedback it will be communicated to the caller. The Ethics Committee uses the 2002 APA Ethical Principles of Psychologists and Code of Conduct, which may be downloaded at, as its reference for consultations.

To request an ethics consultation, please call the MPA office at (952) 928-4657. You will then be directed to an Ethics Committee member who can provide consultation.

Within this context of unity and self-exploration, we are committed to increasing our sensitivity to all aspects of diversity as well as our knowledge and appreciation of the unique qualities of different cultures and backgrounds.We aspire to becoming alert to aspects of diversity, previously unseen or unacknowledged in our culture. In this spirit, we are committed to collaborating with multicultural groups to combat racism and other forms of prejudice as we seek to promote diversity in our society. To this end, we are dedicated to increasing our multicultural competencies and effectiveness as educators, researchers, administrators, policy makers, and practitioners.
