PSY 570 Final Project Milestone Four Guidelines and Rubric

Prompt: The four milestone assignments in this course will prepare you to complete your final project, a case study analysis. In Milestone Four you will create
two decision-making models to assess your case study vignette’s ethical conflict and address additional considerations. This milestone will further refine the
outline you worked on in Milestones Two and Three.

First, work on element 9 and list the eight-step ethical decision-making model and apply the eight-step ethical decision-making model to analyze your case study
vignette’s ethical conflict. You will develop an ethical strategy to address the ethical issues you identified in Milestone Three and which you could use to resolve
your case’s ethical conflict. After working with the eight-step decision-making model, you will identify an alternative decision-making model to analyze your case
study vignette’s ethical conflict.

Besides discussing ethical decision-making models to resolve your case study vignette’s ethical conflict, you will also look at additional considerations for the
ethical conflict. Address whether or not multiple-role relationships were present in your case study. If they are present, detail their importance in problem solving
a dilemma. If they are not present, provide a statement that shows you understand what these standards are and their importance in all psychology disciplines.
Expand upon element 7 and explain how you considered diversity issues, social concerns, multicultural considerations, and equality in your problem solving of an
ethics dilemma.
