Originally published in 2005, this second, expanded edition of Ethics for Behavior Analysts is a valuable resource in preparing behavior analysts for the difficult task of providing quality services. Specifically, this book is useful to behavior analysts who are working in the clinical, educational, and rehabilitative fields with clients who are developmentally disabled, are on the autistic spectrum, or have a variety of moderate to severe behavior problems that require treatment by experts using the latest evidence-based methods. The content is organized around the Behavior Analyst Certification Board Guidelines, and contains detailed ethical scenarios designed to get readers thinking about potential issues and dilemmas that may arise within their work. Responses to Case Scenarios are found at the end of each appropriate chapter, along with valuable tips found throughout the text.
