Identifying the Elements and Process for Ethical Decision Making in Behavior Analysis

Identifying the Elements and Process for Ethical Decision Making in Behavior Analysis

Mary Jane Weiss, Ph.D., BCBA-D

3 Credits - BCBA Type II CEU

Being an ethical behavior analyst is a complex skill set, requiring both knowledge of our professional guidelines and the ability to implement them in variable and challenging contexts. In this discussion, we will review the Guidelines for Responsible Conduct, and will identify core themes and responsibilities. We will then review several sample scenarios, and discuss the decision making tree that would assist a behavior analyst in identifying the best and most ethical course of action. In this process, we will discuss strategies for identifying ethical solutions and will identify resources that are available to assist us in these decisions.

Mary Jane Weiss, Ph.D., BCBA-D has been working as a behavior analyst serving people with autism for over 25 years. She received her Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from Rutgers University in 1990, and became a Board Certified Behavior Analyst in 2000. She is currently a Professor at Endicott College, where she directs the Masters Program in ABA and Autism. She previously served as Director of Research and Training and as Clinical Director of the Douglass Developmental Disabilities Center at Rutgers University for 16 years. In recent years, she has been an adjunct faculty member and has taught graduate courses in ABA at Rutgers University and New York University. Her clinical and research interests center on defining best practice ABA techniques, on evaluating the impact of ABA in learners with autism spectrum disorders, and in maximizing family members expertise and adaptation. She is a regular presenter at regional and national conferences on topics relevant to ABA and autism. She is a past president of the Autism Special Interest Group of the Association for Behavior Analysis, a former member of the Association of Professional Behavior Analysts Board of Directors, and currently serves on the ethics committee of the Behavior Analyst Certification Board, on the Scientific Council of the Organization for Autism Research, on the Legislative Affairs Committee of the New Jersey Association for Behavior Analysis, and on the Board of Trustees of Autism NJ.

Overcoming Adversity with Attitude, Choice, and Purpose

Overcoming Adversity with Attitude, Choice, and Purpose

Julia Fox Garrison

This event will be a 75 minute presentation with a reception to follow.

Presentation, Reception, and Book Signing: $50.00

Presentation only: $35.00

Julia Fox Garrison is the author of Dont Leave Me This Way (or when I get back on my feet youll be sorry). The book chronicles her struggle to regain control over her life and her body, following a massive hemorrhage resulting in a paralyzing stroke. Julia has harnessed her first-hand experience in battling the medical establishment into a compelling message of strength and hope. Wielding her trademark humor and optimism, she transcends the sobering subject of stroke to show how anyone facing a life challenge can overcome adversity through laughter, boundless enthusiasm and unflinching determination.

Julia has been a special guest on local, US and Canadian television and radio programs. She is a highly sought after and acclaimed Keynote Speaker, conducting hundreds of lectures and presentations nationwide. Julia has lectured at medical conferences where she evangelizes for humaneness in medicine. Speaking from the patients perspective, she espouses the value of quality patient care. She also speaks to support and patient advocacy groups, businesses and community organizations where she shares her story of personal triumph against overwhelming odds.

Julia was raised in Andover, MA, in a loving if chaotic household with eight brothers; an upbringing that no doubt made her battle ready for the literal fight of her life. She graduated from Katherine Gibbs School, Boston and Champlain College, Burlington, VT. Julia was an accomplished Manager of Software Support at her company when she suffered the debilitating injury that effectively ended her career in the corporate world. Thus began her journey of rediscovery. Julia currently resides with her husband Jim, son Rory, and dog Shaggy in a suburb outside Boston.

Practical and Time-Efficient Strategies for Training Staff

Practical and Time Efficient Strategies for Training Staff

Dennis H. Reid, Ph.D., BCBA-D

3 Credits - BCBA Type II CEU

This presentation will describe ways to make effective staff training programs practical and time-efficient for application in schools and other human service agencies. Initially, a brief review of an evidence-based, behavioral skills training protocol for teaching important work skills to staff will be presented. Next, a pyramidal approach will be described as a means of involving staff supervisors and other people indigenous to an agency in the staff training process (and reducing the amount of training time for an individual trainer) with the evidence-based protocol. Next, conditions will be described that suggest when brief, on-the-job or in-situ training is likely to be effective for training staff in lieu of more time-consuming training programs carried out with groups of staff. An applied research program that illustrates application of brief on-the-job training will likewise be presented. Other means of reducing the amount of staff training time will also be summarized, including the advantages and disadvantages of using visual media (e.g., on-line or web-based training).

Dr. Dennis Reid has over 40 years of experience as a clinician and supervisor in educational, residential, and community support settings for people with autism and intellectual disabilities, and has consulted with human service agencies in the majority of states of the United States as well as Canada, Australia, and New Zealand. He has published over 140 refereed journal articles and book chapters focusing on applied behavior analysis and authored or co-authored eight books. His Motivating Human Service Staff book is now in its 2nd Edition and received the Writers Digest Certificate of Merit Award. Dennis is also the senior author of the American Association on Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (AAIDD) Supervisory Training Curriculum. In 2007 he was awarded Fellowship status in the Association for Behavior Analysis International and in 2006 received the AAIDD International Research Award. Dennis is the founder and current director of the Carolina Behavior Analysis and Support Center in Morganton, North Carolina, USA. His company has employed people with autism and other severe disabilities in a supported work capacity for 19 years.
