How to Identify Ethical Organizations

If you’re a behavior analyst who specializes in autism treatment, you can likely pick between multiple potential employers. Wouldn’t it be nice to pick an organization to work for that is more likely to treat you fairly and engage in ethical practices? After all, if you engage in unethical behavior at the request of an organization, it is you, not the organization, that is liable for disciplinary action from the BACB (assuming you’re certified).

If you’re wondering how you may find an ethical organization to work for, look no further. Below, I’ve provided a draft copy of an upcoming paper that was recently accepted for publication in Behavior Analysis in Practice. The paper is co-authored by Shawn Quigley and David Cox. Keep an eye out for the official version, and be sure to let me know what you think!

This is a post-peer-review, pre-copyedit version of an article published in Behavior Analysis in Practice. The final authenticated version is available online at:
