About the Author

Ronald D. Francis is Honorary Senior Research Fellow in Psychology at Monash University, Australia, and Professorial Fellow in Ethics and Governance at Victoria University. His experiences in ethics extends over decades, and includes a period as Chairman of a national ethics committee, and as a member of a psychologists registration board, as well as ten years on a research ethics committee.He has authored many articles on ethics, and over a dozen psychology books, as well as being a mentor to those with real-life ethical dilemmas. He has post-graduate qualifications from three different countries, as well as having worked in several of them. He is a frequent visitor to Europe and the UK.


"At the same time, we conclude that a walk through this particular forest will provide readers with some interesting new knowledge, skill, and perspective ... the breadth in the book is intriguing. For example, Francis takes an international perspective that encourages readers to broaden their cultural horizons. He also cites literature from other fields, such as business ethics, which provides additional context for psychologists." (The American Journal of Psychology, 1 March 2011) From review of 1st edition: "This book will prove an invaluable resource to those seeking a broad, cross-national ethical perspective that applies to psychologists across specialities." (Roz Shafran, Behaviour Research and Therapy , vol. 40, 2002)
