Part 2 - Issues of Multicultural Diversity in the Ethical Practice of Applied Behavior Analysis with Dr. Kim Killu
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?
As laws change and technology progresses, the behaviors we engage in becoming more difficult to classify as either ethical or unethical. What may be legal in some states and not in others makes it difficult to follow certain ethical guidelines.
Many applied behavior analysts find themselves in a different world from that in which they were trained. Most are trained by other behavior analysts in programs or even departments where the principal worldview is that of behavior analysis. Fast forward a couple of years (or more) and many of those same people find themselves in multidisciplinary settings, working with people who not only have different specialty areas—for example, medicine, rehabilitation therapy, social work—but, more importantly, a totally different way of looking at problems, both conceptually and methodologically
Interdisciplinary teams devise and implement educational plans for children with special learning challenges. Sometimes, these involve a behavior analyst. Whether you are a behavior analyst thinking about working in schools, currently working in schools, or working alongside a school’s behavior analyst, you know schools have teams of several people who contribute to each child’s education plan.
Thought Leaders, we are sitting down and speaking with Dr. Wayne Fuqua about his history shaped him into the behavior analyst he is today and a chance encounter that could have changed the future of the field of behavior analysis as we know it.
Today we are joined by Dr. James Hawkins and Dr. Neil Deochand from the University of Cincinnati Distance Learning Program. There are a plethora of distance learning programs and it can be very hard to decipher between them, but after speaking with Dr. Hawkins and Dr. Deochand you can hear the passion that they put into their program.
RBT Essentials is a 100% online and self-paced training program for individuals seeking the Registered Behavior Technician (RBT) credential from the Behavior Analyst Certification Board (BACB).
