Every student in a master's program in applied behavior analysis is required to take a course on ethics. Preparing these new practitioners is one of the most daunting aspects of a training program, yet there are few resources describing strategies to teach students to engage in ethical professional behavior. The purpose of this panel is to describe a process for talking about ethical issues that has been in use in a applied behavior analysis training program. The ethical decision making process will be described and different panelists will describe their experiences working with students as they implement the process.
