The BACB just released two informative ethics resources:

Self-Reporting to the BACB Video
Helpful Ethics Resources Podcast Episode

For guidance on meeting important ethics standards, watch the Self-Reporting to the BACB video, which provides information about the who, what, when, why, and how of self-reporting to the BACB.

Tune in to this episode of Inside the BACB for a breakdown of our newest ethics-related tools and tips, including the first-ever ethics toolkit, which focuses on continuity of services.

We hope that these resources assist you in meeting important BACB ethics standards!

Introducing the Ethics Toolkits

We are happy to introduce our new ethics toolkits. These hands-on resources offer guidance to help individuals and organizations ensure that their practices and processes comply with BACB ethics requirements.

Check out our debut toolkit, which focuses on continuity of services. This toolkit offers considerations for designing and evaluating processes that help manage service interruptions, transitions, and discontinuations. It even includes interactive resources that can be shared, modified, and used in your practice.

In addition, the Continuity of Services: Reminders for RBTs document is a companion to the Continuity of Services toolkit that provides additional guidance for RBTs as they navigate changes or interruptions in their ability to provide services. View them both now.
