The Association for Maine Behavior Analysis is proud to announce that our 6th annual conference will be held on September 11, 2020
Our distinguished presenters will be:
Mary Jane Weiss, Ph.D., BCBA-D
Linda LeBlanc, Ph.D., BCBA-D
Mary Jane Weiss' talks will be titled:
Ethical Decision Making: Understanding the Influence of Contextual Factors
Ethical behavior for behavior analysts is a complex and nuanced phenomenon. While our overarching obligations are clear, and while the Professional and Ethical Compliance Code provides clear directives, the application to real-world dilemmas can be more ambiguous. Determining the best course of action requires the assessment of contextual variables that may not be evident from the code itself. In this workshop, we will review resources and strategies to assist with decision making in actual contexts. Models for navigating such dilemmas will be shared, and the application of the strategies to sample dilemmas will be discussed.
Working Effectively in Interprofessional Collaboration Contexts: Navigating Challenges in Intervention Selection and Evaluation
Behavior analysts often coordinate care and treatment in interdisciplinary team contexts. Such collaboration can be challenging when worldviews, treatment directions, and other perspectives are not aligned across team members. It is important to identify resources and strategies for effectively navigating these challenges, so that client outcomes may be maximized.
Linda LeBlanc’s talk will be titled:
Providing Compassionate Care and Building Therapeutic Relationships
