Discuss the importance of the scientific approach to the field of psychology. In your discussion include an evaluation of the importance of research to competencies needed by someone interested in becoming an I/O psychologist. Review the Belmont Report (http://www.hhs.gov/ohrp/humansubjects/guidance/belmont.html) and the American Psychological Association’s (APA) Ethical Principles of Psychologists and Code of Conduct (http://www.apa.org/ethics/code/index.aspx).
