Assignment: Research Psychologist
Case Study Crossing the Relationship Ethical Line (assignment #1)
Research Psychologist A has been conducting a study with human subjects for nearly a year. As a result, A has come to know Participant A quite well. The study is taking longer than expected, and some of the participants are leaving the study. Because of the nature of the working relationship with the participants, Research Psychologist A and Participant A have become interested in an intimate relationship. Since neither one wants to jeopardize the progress of the study, they agree to retain only a professional relationship for the duration of the study, and then to pursue an intimate relationship once the study is completed and the results have been published.
