Pseudoscientific practices are commonly used and promoted in the field of developmental disabilities. Behavior analysts should anticipate encountering such treatments in practice and understand their ethical obligations with regard to these practices. This presentation will present a model to prepare behavior analysts for how to address situations in which clients may ask them to use pseudoscientific practices, as well as reviewing resources for ethical guidance and evidence-based practices.
