Question description

(A). Responsibilities to the Field and to Colleagues

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?

(B) Conduct a Risk Benefit Analysis

Describe a specific behavioral intervention that you plan on using with a client, and conduct a risk-benefit analysis using the eight general risk factors discussed in your text (p.235–240). Additionally, provide a brief description of the five benefits described on (p.240–242) that would go along with the use of this behavioral treatment. Make a final recommendation based on your analysis as to whether or not you would recommend using this intervention.
