Standford Prison Experiment

bob February 5, 2013 Research Methods Stanford Prison Experiment 1. Prisoners were put under a great deal of stress. The prisoners were physiologically and physically harmed. Prisoners were stripped naked, chained, and was forced to wear bags over their heads. 2. Yes there was voluntary participation in the experiment, because all of the participants signed up for the experiment. But the acts committed in the experiment most likely weren’t voluntary, meaning that the prisoners did not volunteer to be treated how they were treated.
They didn’t know that they would be involved in unethical acts and be treated unfairly. 3. Yes participants were deceived; an example would be that their consent forms were not complete and did not properly address all that would take place in the experiment. There was a huge invasion of privacy, not to mention the surprise arrests. The prison was supposed to be a “safe environment” to study imprisonment, but Zimbardo did not take into consideration that peer pressure would make it difficult to withdraw. 4.
Yes I believed the participants were harmed mentally because of the physiological abuse they were taking. I found no benefits out of the harm either way. 5. Researchers try to overcome the ethical issues by saying that the prisoners were treated how real prisoners would be treated. ACJS The ACJS would apply to the prison experiment by letting the guards know that in their professional activities as guards, members of the ACJS are committed to enhancing the general well-being of society and of the individuals and groups within it.
