Ethics in the Workplace

Professional Continuing Education Series

Join us for this workshop that is part of our intermediate to advanced-level workshop series for human services and behavioral healthcare professionals working in clinical, educational, medical, and rehabilitation settings.

Speaker:  Richard B. Graff, Ph.D., BCBA-D, LABA

Description: Behavior analytic practitioners encounter potential ethical dilemmas in the workplace on a regular basis. Some of these issues are straightforward, and experienced BCBAs can deal with these situations easily. However, on occasion, more difficult and complex ethical situations arise. Recognizing and dealing effectively with these situations is a critical skill that all behavior analysts must have.

This presentation begins with a review of some common ethical dilemmas that can arise in the workplace. Then, we will review how to assess if an issue rises to the level of being considered an ethical violation. Next, we will review some strategies for evaluating the complexity of the situation, which may dictate whether the behavior analyst can resolve the situation on their own, or if additional resources would be needed. Finally, we will review the steps necessary to deal with a complex ethical dilemma.

Understanding how to recognize and deal with complex ethical issues will not only help you protect your clients, but will help to protect you as well.
