Symposium #532
CE Offered: BACB — 
Ethics
Help! What to do When Reality and the Ethical Code Conflict
Monday, May 28, 2018
5:00 PM–5:50 PM
Manchester Grand Hyatt, Seaport Ballroom A
Area: PRA; Domain: Service Delivery
CE Instructor: Susan Wilczynski, Ph.D.
Chair: Susan Wilczynski (Ball State University)
Abstract: The Behavior Analyst Certification Boards (BACBs) Professional and Ethical Compliance Code for Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBAs) describes the professional and ethical behavior that all BCBAs, Board Certified Assistant Behavior Analysts (BCaBAs), and Registered Behavior Technicians (RBTs) must adhere to (BACB, 2016). Supervision is an integral part to becoming a competent behavior analyst and integral to the service delivery of the RBT. Differing roles lead to different applications of the BACBs ethical code. Business owners, BCBAs, and RBTs all perform different aspects of service to their clients, therefore, their experience in applying the ethical code to real life situations often varies. It is crucial to discuss the role of supervision and how that relates to the ethical code, due to those instances in which parts of the ethical code conflict with each other, the role we perform, and the real world scenario that professionals are faced with. Professionals often experience situations where there is no simple solution whereby the BACBs ethical code and reality meet up seamlessly, therefore, our symposium seeks to compare the multitude of viewpoints ranging from business owner to RBT and discuss suggestions for resolving these differences in point of view in an ethical way.
