1.5 BACB CEs



For helping professionals, when considering whether one has the capacity to intervene with a client it is crucial to examine one's ethical requirements regarding scope of competence. When considering sexual and sexual-appearing behaviors as well as relationship behaviors, an extra burden of competence is often required. PLISSIT (Annon, 1976) is a model of considering behavioral intervention for sexual problems in the field of sex therapy. Providing a hierarchy of Permission, Limited Information, Specific Suggestions, and Intensive Therapy, PLISSIT provides a guide for intervention considerations. For behavior analysts, portions of PLISSIT may be within their scope, while others require specialized training. This workshop examines a decision making model for behavior analysts to consider whether supports are within their scope, not within their scope but appropriate with ongoing consultation, supervision, and training, or not within their scope and requiring a referal out.
