8.4 Ethics in Research with Homeless Women

This chapter applies feminist and community psychology ethics to the analysis of research with women who are homeless. The author examines the ethical questions that can arise throughout the research process, from the planning stage, through data collection and analysis, to the writing and dissemination of results and proposes strategies for transforming research with women who are homeless into a means for challenging oppression and promoting liberation. Research offers a means for psychologists to challenge the social injustice at the root of homelessness; however, it is vital that the research itself not reproduce this injustice in its process or products.
