This panel is a continuation of previous presentations at ABAI regarding Behavior Analysts Who Are Behaving Badly. This year we will focus on the plight of the supervisees and RBTs who work under BCBAs who do not respect their work experience or the conditions under which they provide services. For this panel we have brought together three behavior analysis ethicists who are regularly requested to provide guidance through the ABAEthicsHotline, with regard to the treatment of supervisees and RBTs. To demonstrate the range of approaches used and opinions offered, recent ethics questions from both supervisees and RBT will be presented, each panelist will offer their guidance, we will then debate the merits of our various and sometimes differing approaches. Toward the end of the session we will open the floor to questions from the audience and again each ethicist will respond so that the range of tactics and strategies will be apparent.
