The purpose of this paper is to provide a basis for a long term dialogue,within lAPS, about values and ethical issues raised by our work as students,researchers, practitioners, and teachers. As members of the profession ofenvironmental design and research, we want to explore areas of ethical con-flict with other members of the profession in an on going dialogue, and joinwith others in a search for the ethical processes, both explicit and implicit,which underlie our work and contrast them with the codes of ethical behav-iors provided by professional associations.This paper describes the results of a research project we began last year.As part of that project we mailed questionnaires to people who had attendedEDRA 17 and 18 and to people listed in the most recent EDRA membershipdirectory as well as the International Directory. (We received 88 re-sponses from 425 mailed questionnaires for a return rate of almost 21percent. ) Although the main purpose of the first phase of our research wasto obtain bibliographic references and to identify people who had been in-volved in EDR projects which were used to implement environmentalchange, we also took the opportunity to ask for brief answers to the follow-ing questions:1 )Please describe any values or ethical issues which are important to youin relationship to your research or practice (for example, relationshipswith clients or research participants and /or other professionals; dissemi-nation of information; anonymity; the circumstances under which you willor will not work; financial renumeration; uses of your work; sources offunds; and so on). 2)Are there some part of particular professional, personal, or educationalexperiences or events that have led you to consider these issues to be im-portant? Please describe.As part of our research we also analyzed the codes of ethics from a range ofAmerican professional organizations to which some lAPS members also be-long, including the American Planning Association, the American Institute ofCertified Planners, the American Institute of Architects, The American Psy-chological Association, the American Sociological Association, the AmericanAnthropological Association, the Society for Applied Anthropology, theAmerican Society of Interior Designers, the National Association of Envi-ronmental Professionals, and the Human Factors Society.This paper will describe the range of issues people raised and the types ofexperiences on which these were based. We will also discuss conflictingviews which emerged. Finally, we will summarize how the issues raisedrelate to the professional codes of ethics we have analyzed.
