Abstract

This article provides a primer for researchers exploring ethical issues in the research of group work. The article begins with an exploration of relevant ethical issues through the research process and current standards guiding its practice. Next, the authors identify resources that group work researchers can consult prior to constructing their studies, along with specific recommendations of particular import at critical junctures in the research process. The article concludes by identifying common issues that can arise within group work research, and a discussion of how researchers can both proactively consider and then respond to these issues.
