This chapter discusses the tension between human subject considerations, basic ethics, cultural approaches to the research process, and researchers' need for objective data. It outlines potential conflicts and presents examples of how these issues have been managed by other research projects. It lists principles for applying cultural and ethical issues, including involving stakeholders, accepting stakeholder's needs and concerns, taking risks to be responsive and assure community benefits, and recognizing community concerns about publications. Suggestions are made for responding to information about child abuse, mental health needs, and suicidality without compromising the research.

Keywords:   child abuse, suicidality, stakeholders, ethics, IRB, cultural, human subjects, benefits
