Taking Full Responsibility: the Ethics of Supervision in Behavior Analytic Practice

(Sellers et al, 2016)


Part of Soiléir's Supervision and Ethics Series

Behavior Analyst Certification Board Type 2 CE (1 CEU - Ethics & Supervision)



This article reviews the paper by Sellers et al (2016) Taking Full Responsibility: the Ethics of Supervision in Behavior Analytic Practice in Behavior Analysis in Practice Vol 9 (4) pp 299-308. 

This paper relates to the BACB Professional and Ethical Compliance Code 5.0 Behavior Analysts as Supervisors, which includes

  • 5.01 Supervisory Competence
  • 5.02 Supervisory Volume
  • 5.03 Supervisory Delegation
  • 5.04 Designing Effective Supervision and Training
  • 5.05 Communication of Supervision Conditions
  • 5.06 Providing Feedback to Supervisees and
  • 5.07 Evaluating the Effects of Supervision

Simply read the paper and answer the quiz that follows correctly. When you have answered all questions correctly and achieved 100%, press the 'submit' button. Your certificate will then be e-mailed to you.

Be sure to edit your profile so your display name (in blue on the profile page at the top) includes your BCBA/BCaBA number. Otherwise it won't print on the certificate.



Participants who successfully complete the quiz will be awarded one Type 2 CEU that can be used as part of the requirements for the BACB certification cycle. In addition to counting as a standard CEU, this CEU hour can also be used as an ethics and/or supervision CEU. Please note that if it is used against either or both of these, it still represents one hour of learning in total (i.e. one CEU).


Please note that this article is listed under both the 'Ethics' and our 'Supervision' series on the website catalogue. However, It can only be completed once by an individual participant. The resulting CEU does count towards both the Ethics and Supervision requirements for BACB Type 2 CEU's and can be entered as such on the BACB Gateway.


  Article Abstract  

The supervision of professionals in the field of behavior analysis is multifaceted. The BACB® Professional and Ethical Compliance Code for Behavior Analysis provides guidance for effective supervisory practices, as supervision impacts both the supervisee and the consumers. The purpose of this article is (1) to discuss rationales and consequences relative to supervision issues, (2) to provide directions for professional development in each of the seven identified supervisory areas within the code, and (3) to set the occasion for critical discourse relative to supervision. Case examples are used to illustrate each of the seven supervisory sub-components of the “Behavior Analysts as Supervisors” section of the Code. A rationale is provided for each component, as well as a discussion of possible undesirable consequences resulting from not following the rule. While the code provides clear expectations of the desired behavior, this article explores more of the subtle nuances inherent in each section of the supervision code, with the goal of achieving a better understanding of the Code and enhancing supervisory skills
