Ethics in Psychology – Sketchnotes for learning

Last week I began my psychology studies with foundational units centred mostly around the fundamentals of practice and academic writing. To help myself with absorbing the learning material I have been doing a bit of sketchnoting.

APS Code of Ethics

This sketchnote is a summary of the ‘APS Code of Ethics’ from the Australian Psychological Society.

In creating these summaries I consider the ethical dilemmas around the use of the of copyrighted works I am visually summarising. I beleive it is generally accepted that summaries are not a copyright violation. I am also not producing them for monetary gain, and they function as my notes for the purpose of study. I have shared them to benefit others, who would need to reference the original works to glean detailed insights into the subject matter.


I am a first year student at Deakin University studying for my Bachelor of Psychological Science, majoring in Organisational Studies. This represents an output of my learning process and/or my own thoughts. It is not for the purposes of assessment or examination.
