This chapter describes important considerations related to ethical decision making for research on depression with women from ethnocultural populations. Using real-life examples, the authors present evidence of the connections between irresponsible research and cultural incompetence. The chapter focuses on epistemological, ethical, and methodological challenges that confront researchers when working with research participants from ethnocultural communities. It also outlines crucial dimensions of culturally sensitive research, such as applying a cultural perspective to the evaluation of risk and benefits, developing and implementing culturally respectful consent, confidentiality and disclosure procedures, and engaging in appropriate community and participant consultation.

Keywords:   informed consent, ethical issues in research, ethnocultural communities, confidentiality, culturally sensitive research
