This paper explains that the author believes that true ethical values take precedence over ingrained code of conduct laws even if there will be adverse consequences applied to those persons who act against these laws. Next, the author relates that the code of ethical standards, which exists in conjunction with the general principles, organizational procedural factors and objects of application, are the foundation for the credibility of psychology as a science. The paper concludes that the author's desire for a degree in psychology reflects her ethical need to serve other people as realized through her own personal ethics that have led to her own individual growth.

From the Paper:

"Although this concept appears at face value to be contrary to the application of the spiritual approach to psychological ethics and principals, I believe the concepts are consistent with the integration of spirituality and psychology; there must be a comparison made between existing models. A number of biases exist within the realm of spirituality and psychology. If one is to be affective in either realm, the task of understanding these dilemmas are the responsibility of the therapist. Contemporarily, this domain is considered cross-culture psychology; however, I would consider the employment of a domain that has not yet been designated: cross-spiritual psychology."
