Episode 51 - (ETHICS) Ethics and Social Media

Put down that Facebook! Drop those Twitters! You can't risk a moment more on social media without first listening to this important episode on the ethics of social media.  Think it's ok to share pictures of your fellow BCBAs relaxing on the beach on Instragram? What about Snapchatting with colleagues to discuss possible solutions a client with SIB? Y'know what: Don't even try to answer without listening to Rob, Diana, and Jackie discuss articles all about social media and the ethical quandry you may already be in!

And, don't forget a handy link to the updated BACB Ethical Guidelines so you can read along.

Episode 51 Preview

Because one episode wasn't enough, we've got TWO big ethics episodes coming up throughout the rest of March.  And not just any ethics! We're going to dive deep into the pitfalls inherent in social media and technology.  How the heck can I post inappropriate pictures online and stay on the right side of my ethical obligations (answer: you can't!) and is it possible to teach my staff and co-workers to be an upstanding citizen of ethics (answer: it is!).  In the meantime enjoy some Errata about a poorly behaved cat and a Rob ProTip about snagging your dream jobs.  The power is yours!
