Ethical Considerations in Single-Subject Design

To prepare: Review the readings and weekly video introduction to gain an understanding of the types of single-subject designs and when each is appropriate. Focus on reversal designs and on their implementation. Consider ethical issues with removing treatment from a client to examine the efficacy of the intervention. Reversal designs (e.g., A-B-A-B designs) require the removal of an intervention to help you determine if the intervention is working. Using the graphic prototype of an A-B-A-B design (see Figure 8.1 in your Cooper text), assume the target behavior is making eye contact and the intervention is contingent praise (e.g., “Nice job looking me in the eye.”). Consider why you might remove an intervention that is working. By Day 3 Post by Day 3: Provide an explanation of practical and ethical considerations related to using reversal design with this target behavior. Provide an example of a target behavior for which using a reversal design would be ethically inappropriate. Provide an alternative design for this behavior that would be more appropriate.
