As you have learned in Unit 3, there are several ethical considerations of Functional Behavior Assessment which are listed in the Behavior Analyst Certification Boardâ€™s (BACBâ€™s) â€œProfessional and Ethical Compliance Code for Behavior Analysts,â€ section 3.
For this discussion, you are going to create a scenario in which you have a client who is in need of assessment and choose two ethical considerations taken from the BACBâ€™s â€œProfessional and Ethical Compliance Codeâ€ to explain how you would address them.
- Describe the consideration that applies to your scenario and how you would approach it.
- Discuss in detail why you felt the two considerations that you chose were most important in your hypothetical scenario.
Peer Responses: Respond to two classmatesâ€™ primary posts by discussing the ethical considerations that they chose and identifying two additional considerations, explaining how they apply to their scenario.
