Product Description Those working within the field of applied behavior analysis encounter potential ethical dilemmas on a daily basis. While some challenges can be anticipated and appropriately addressed before they become unmanageable, oftentimes behavior analysts are confronted with unforeseen and novel situations that require immediate, yet careful attention. It is impossible to anticipate and plan for every eventuality. A Workbook of Ethical Case Scenarios in Applied Behavior Analysis presents over 85 real-world case scenarios commonly faced by individuals practicing applied behavior analysis. The examples range in difficulty and severity to address the unique challenges and needs of those teaching, practicing, or learning applied behavior analysis through ethics-focused coursework or preparing for the BACB® certification exam. In addition to case scenarios, the book provides detailed questions to facilitate discussion and critical thinking and offers suggestions related to the navigation of ethically precarious situations. Review "Instructors wanting to encourage their students to become more sensitive to current ethical issues, will find this new book by Sush and Najdowski is the ideal text; the scenarios ring true to real-world situations and the authors focus not just on topical discussion but take a focused problem-solving approach." --Jon S. Bailey, PhD, BCBA-D, Department of Psychology, Florida State University, Tallahassee, Florida "A Workbook of Ethical Case Scenarios in Applied Behavior Analysis is a goldmine for instructors in search of case studies for teaching ethical decision-making and makes a significant and timely contribution to the field of behavior analysis." --Matthew T. Brodhead, PhD, BCBA-D, Michigan State University, East Lansing, Michigan "This workbook provides a tremendous resource for helping new behavior analysts work through commonly encountered ethical dilemmas. This will be a great asset in ethics courses and in preparation for the exam." --Linda A. LeBlanc, PhD, BCBA-D, LeBlanc Behavioral Consulting, Golden, Colorado "Sush and Najdowski provide a comprehensive set of scenarios that represent the full range of ethical standards set forth by the Behavior Analyst Certification Board®. The scenarios are realistic and relevant to situations a Board Certified Behavior Analyst® would likely encounter in his or her career. I especially like how the authors have structured the analysis of the scenarios in a behavior analytic format (e.g., analyzing the antecedents, behaviors, and consequences involved in the situation). The authors provide a behavioral skills training approach to the text by first providing models of how the practitioner should write answers to the provided scenarios and then providing space for guided practice to occur with a course instructor, supervisor, or mentor. I am eager to use this workbook with my own students and in my own instruction." --Stephanie M.
