Effective January 1, 2016, the BACB® Professional and Ethical Compliance Code replaced the Conduct Guidelines; a change that can have a significant and positive impact on the field. As behavior analysts, we are all continuously working to integrate what is now an enforceable Ethics Code into our daily practices, actively reviewing the new Code to ensure compliance with our current work or reviewing it as part of an evaluation of potential new work you might be pursuing. If a new job or promotion expands an individual’s scope of practice beyond the direct implementation of a given area of clinical service, then their scope of practice has now shifted from clinical services to managing employee performance—and the Code applies to these OBM-related responsibilities the same as they do clinical responsibilities. The purpose of this workshop is to discuss how the BACB Professional and Ethical Compliance Code extends beyond clinical practice and applies to those working as managers, business owners, and consultants.
