Who We Are…
GPS Psychology & Anxiety Clinic is committed to increasing scientific, professional, and public knowledge of behavior and people’s understanding of themselves and others and to the use of such knowledge to enhance the condition of individuals, families, organizations, and society through our several services that emphasize client/patient centered, evidenced based treatments and interventions. We understand that our relationship between and among our clients/patients are an essential vehicle for change. We engage our clients/patients as partners in their treatment, adapting to where they are at and where they want to go. We seek to strengthen relationships among people in a purposeful effort to promote, restore, maintain, and enhance the well-being of individuals, families, social groups, organizations, and communities. We strive to empower the public, family, and individual in developing informed judgments and choices concerning human behavior. To help us achieve this, we seek out and employ passionate, innovative, honest, empathetic, and motivated individuals who share our mission. We promote accuracy, honesty, and truthfulness in the science, teaching, and practice of our services. We seek to exercise reasonable judgment and take precautions to ensure that our potential biases, boundaries of competence, and the limitations of our expertise do not lead to or condone unjust practices. We respect the dignity and worth of all people, and the rights of individuals to privacy, confidentiality, and self-determination. We recognize that special safeguards may be necessary to protect the rights and welfare of persons or communities whose vulnerabilities impair autonomous decision making. We emphasize awareness of and respect cultural, individual, and role differences, including those based on age, gender, gender identity, race, ethnicity, culture, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, disability, language, and socioeconomic status and consider these factors when working with members of such groups. We try to eliminate the effect on our work of biases based on those factors, and we do not knowingly participate in or condone activities of others based on such prejudices. Guiding PrinciplesPrinciple A: Beneficence and Nonmaleficence GPS employees strive to benefit and empower those with whom they work and take care to do no harm. In their professional actions, GPS employees seek to safeguard the welfare and rights of those with whom they interact professionally and other affected persons. When conflicts occur among GPS employees’ obligations or concerns, they attempt to resolve these conflicts in a responsible fashion that avoids or minimizes harm. Because GPS employees’ scientific and professional judgments and actions may affect the lives of others, they are alert to and guard against personal, financial, social, organizational, or political factors that might lead to misuse of their influence. GPS employees strive to be aware of the possible effect of their own physical and mental health on their ability to help those with whom they work. Principle B: Fidelity and Responsibility GPS employees establish relationships of trust with those with whom they work. They are aware of their professional and scientific responsibilities to society and to the specific communities in which they work. GPS employees uphold professional standards of conduct, clarify their professional roles and obligations, accept appropriate responsibility for their behavior, and seek to manage conflicts of interest that could lead to exploitation or harm. Psychologists consult with, refer to, or cooperate with other professionals and institutions to the extent needed to serve the best interests of those with whom they work. They are concerned about the ethical compliance of their colleagues' scientific and professional conduct. Psychologists strive to contribute a portion of their professional time for little or no compensation or personal advantage. Principle C: Integrity GPS employees seek to promote accuracy, honesty, and truthfulness in their science, teaching, supervision, and several treatment environments. In these activities GPS employees do not steal, cheat, or engage in fraud, subterfuge, or intentional misrepresentation of fact. GPS employees strive to keep their promises and to avoid unwise or unclear commitments. In situations in which deception may be ethically justifiable to maximize benefits and minimize harm, GPS employees have a serious obligation to consider the need for, the possible consequences of, and their responsibility to correct any resulting mistrust or other harmful effects that arise from the use of such techniques. Principle D: Justice GPS employees recognize that fairness and justice entitle all persons to access to and benefit from the contributions of health care and to equal quality in the processes, procedures, and services being conducted by GPS employees. GPS employees exercise reasonable judgment and take precautions to ensure that their potential biases, the boundaries of their competence, and the limitations of their expertise do not lead to or condone unjust practices. Principle E: Respect for People’s Rights and Dignity GPS employees respect the dignity and worth of all people, and the rights of individuals to privacy, confidentiality, and self-determination. GPS employees are aware that special safeguards may be necessary to protect the rights and welfare of persons or communities whose vulnerabilities impair autonomous decision making. GPS employees are aware of and respect cultural, individual, and role differences, including those based on age, gender, gender identity, ethnicity, race, culture, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, disability, language, and socioeconomic status and consider these factors when working with members of such groups. GPS employees try to eliminate the effect on their work of biases based on those factors, and they do not knowingly participate in or condone activities of others based upon such prejudices.
