The early years of the 20th century were host to a number of unethical research studies.

The early years of the 20th century were host to  a number of unethical research studies. Research involving the way that  a young child reacts to and generalizes fear responses, medical  experiments conducted in concentration camps, and observing the way  people respond to authority were just a few of the most famous  experiments whose byproduct was placing clients in physical pain and/or  mental anguish. Since then, it has been recognized that research  subjects need to be protected from the flagrant disregard of  researchers. This week, you consider the guidelines in Walden  University’s Institutional Review Board (IRB) document, “Research Ethics  FAQs for Doctoral Students in the Clinical/Intervention Fields:  Practical Tips for Avoiding Delays and Problems in the Research Approval  Process.”
