|Description: Behavior Analysts have the power to help or hurt their clients. What course of action is in the long-term best interests of your clients? What are those interests and who should define them?
We will present a set of case studies that illustrate the types of ethical problems that you may encounter as a practitioner. You will have the opportunity to use ethical principles to solve these problems. Take this workshop to satisfy the BCBA requirement for 3 CEUs of Ethics.|
|Learning Objectives: At the conclusion of the workshop, the participant will know how to perform the following skills:
1)Given real-life examples of ethical problems that practitioners must solve, participants will select the course of action that is in the best long-term interest of their clients.
2)Given recommended solutions to ethical problems, participants will state the reasons they chose a particular course of action, justifying their decisions in terms of the long-term best interest of their clients.|
