By leveraging the power of behavioral systems analysis (BSA), behavior analysts may increase the probability of employees engaging in ethical behaviors that increase the quality of the care they provide. This workbook describes a pragmatic, solutions-oriented, and socially valid approach to ethics that uses behavioral systems to teach employees “what to do” in certain situations, instead of using a punitive “how not to behave” approach. Upon completion of this workbook, behavior analysts will have the foundational skills that are necessary to begin to use BSA in their own practice.

This workbook features:

  1. A guided practice that walks the user through the six steps of BSA
  2. Non-technical language that is consumable for students and supervisors alike
  3. Highly applicable content that is highly relevant for ABA service delivery
