Ethical Responsibility to the Field of Behavior Analysis and Risk-Benefits Anal
It needs to be at least 350 words
Describe a situation where you believe there may be an ethical violation taking place by one of your colleagues on the job where you work (for this discussion, let’s say that you work at a private facility serving autistic and developmentally disabled children ages 5–18). What type of evidence is acceptable to use when deciding whether or not to bring a possible violation to the attention of your colleague? Are there specific guidelines for how to go about confronting your colleague, and if so, what are they, and how would you approach this situation? How would you respond, and what is your duty as an ABA professional? Legally? How might your own sociocultural background play a role in this decision?
