Description: The Behavior Analysis Certification Board (BACB) presents certificates with ethical guidelines and requires ongoing training in ethics as part of maintaining certification. The emphasis, however, is for practitioners. The BACB does not give as much guidance for those whose primary job titles are professors and administrators in a university setting. This workshop will cover the BACB guidelines for academic settings and focus on ethical scenarios for professors and administrators.
Learning Objectives: At the conclusion of the workshop, participants should be able to: (1) identify BACB ethical guidelines relevant to professionals working in academic settings; (2) identify changes in the BACB ethical guidelines relevant to professional working in academic settings; and (3) identify ethical guidelines applicable to ethical challenges common in academic settings.
Activities: Instructional activities will include short lecture with the majority of the workshop spent in role play and discussion of ethical scenarios.
Audience: Professors and administrators and others who work in academic settings.
Content Area: Practice
Instruction Level: Intermediate
