Among the ethical conduct issues that can arise are the risks inherent in dual or overlapping relationships, issues of confidentiality (outside of the meeting contexts as well as within meetings), conflicts of interest (both real and apparent), and opportunities for manipulation/exploitation. In order to ensure that potential ethical problems are dealt with before they become actual misconduct dilemmas, student representatives are encouraged to reacquaint themselves with the principles and values articulated in the publications outlined below. Furthermore, students who are concerned about any possible violations of ethical standards should immediately contact the PGSA Faculty Liaison. 1. CPA s Code of Ethics 2. "Overlapping/Dual Relationships" (Biaggio & Green, 1995 [in Rave & Larsen, Eds.]; 3. CPA's Companion Manual to the 1991 Code of Ethics (Sinclair & Pettifor, 1992); 4. Ethical Decision Making for Practicing Social Scientists: Putting Values into Practice (SSFC, 1995).
