FERRERO, Andrea  and  ANDRADE, Eugenia. References to undergraduate practices in psychology in ethics codes of Mercosur’s countries’ and North America. Interam. j. psychol. [online]. 2008, vol.42, n.3, pp. 499-506. ISSN 0034-9690.

This work considers ethical and deontological standards that regulate undergraduate practices in psychology within Mercosur’s countries, making a comparison with similar issues in the United States. In order to this, references to students are analyzed in the ethics codes of those countries, considering two main group of articles, basically referred to an academic scope or to professional practice itself. Consequences of including references to undergraduate students beyond articles regulating teaching or supervision are considered. It is suggested the convenience of using specific regulations for undergraduate practices in psychology, and more specific criteria for further code’s revisions.

Keywords : Professional ethics; Ethic codes; Undergraduate training in psychology; Mercosur; North America.
