“Sometimes [situations] are not black and white, but the more we talk about them, the better we will be at applying the ethical code.”

Jan Montgomery, MS, BCBA, EdD, LBA-NY


Applying the BACB’s Professional and Ethical Compliance Code Using Real-World Examples.

As you have gone into the “real world,” you probably found yourself in situations that you never thought you would encounter. Uninformed parents? Pseudoscientific treatments?  Facilitated communication? Work-life balance? These presenters use real-life examples from their time as practicing professionals to apply the Behavior Analyst Certification Board’s Professional and Ethical Compliance Code to a variety of scenarios. Scenarios include the areas of child welfare, traumatic brain injury, autism spectrum disorder, applied behavior analysis clinics, controversial medical interventions, supervision, and academic settings.
