I don't want to start a review stating that I struggle with ethics - but in terms of studying for the BCBA exam the ethical questions were hard to learn with precision, questions like when to introduce a punishment element, terminate services, decline services and so forth. Ethics for Behaviour Analysts confronts these issues with clarity and easy to digest language (not to lampoon ABA resources but often they are dry to a fault) using the BACB guidelines as a reference.

Required reading for BCaBA coursework. Vignettes of ethical situations are a bit contrived.

They paint issues as black and white when there really is room for discussion. Do they not see the grey area? Is it more than they wanted to tackle? Thankfully I am reading this book in the context of a post-grad ethics class which provided opportunities for further analysis.

On another note, I resent the sexist remarks the authors make about Jenny McCarthy. She was a hack and I have no professional respect for her, but there's no reason to fall back on her personal choice to be a playboy bunny

I had to read this for my post-grad program. I was pleasantly surprised that it was actually enjoyable to read for a book on what can be a very dry subject. Logically laid out and clear. Much better than many of the other books and articles I've read on ethics for professionals.

It's good for what it is, a very structured book in which to learn the guidelines.
