The Ethics Code, along with the work of Taylor, Leblanc and Nosik have noted the importance of compassionate care as well as a more contextual approach to ethical practice.  As behavior analysts grapple with addressing the concerns of the autistic community as well as those of parent advocates, many challenges arise and a compassionate approach becomes increasing important.  In this webinar, we will address the challenges of compassionate care and how its practice relates to elements of the Ethics Code.
