Ethics and Reporting in Psychology


Dear Respondent ,

Thank you for participating in the Ethics and Reporting in Psychology study.

My name is Evan Lockary, M.A., and I am a Psy.D. student in the Clinical Psychology program at the Wright Institute in Berkeley, CA. As part of my doctoral research, I am conducting a study exploring the experience of mental health clinicians who learn about ethics violations by other clinicians. 

Please consider participating if you:

- Have ever been licensed as a mental health clinician at the Masters or Doctorate level in the United States.
- During the course of your career, have ever learned about a another licensed mental health clinician committing a sexual boundary violation. (A sexual boundary violation includes any ethics violation involving actual or attempted sexual contact with a current or former client.)

The study will include a small set of demographic questions, questions about your level of experience as a clinician, and questions related to your experience learning about a sexual boundary violation committed by another clinician. It should take approximately 5-20 minutes to complete.

The survey is anonymous, and poses a minimal risk to you and your privacy. You will not be asked for contact information or information that could directly identify you. You may contact me if you would like to receive the results of the study once it has been completed. At the end of the questionnaire, you be given a list of mental health resources. Please consider following up with these resources if you feel any emotional discomfort as a result of answering the questions in the survey, or for any other mental health needs. 

Additionally, please consider forwarding this study to your colleagues and associates in the mental health field.

If you have any questions, comments or concerns, please feel free to contact Evan Lockary, M.A. at, or my dissertation chair, Matthew McKay, Ph.D.,
