Ethics and Supervision Continuing Education


Ethics CE. Acceptable ethics content is behavior-analytic in nature and covers ethical issues in behavior analysis practice or research. Ethics content should incorporate the BACB's Ethics requirements. Sample ethics CE topics might include the (in)appropriateness of implementing non-behavioral therapies, strategies for avoiding/managing dual relationships, creating a culture of ethics in an organization, ethical implications of media and technology, among others.


Supervision CE. BCaBAs, BCBAs and BCBA-Ds who wish to provide supervision of individuals pursuing BACB certification or the ongoing practice of BCaBAs or RBTs will be required to obtain specific training in order to do so. These individuals will also be required to obtain 3 CEUs on supervision in every certification cycle. Acceptable supervision content is behavior-analytic in nature and covers effective supervision as defined in the BACB's Experience Standards (in particular, the "Nature of Supervision" section) and the BACB Supervisor Training Curriculum Outline.


Ethics/Supervision CEUs Overlap. A CEU may be counted as either an ethics CEU or a supervision CEU but not both. Beginning September 1, 2016, CEUs acquired from the 8-hour Supervisor Training may count as supervision CEUs only. From that date forward, CEUs from these events will not be accepted toward the ethics CEU requirement.
