The Ethics of Intervention for Food Refusal

The Ethics of Intervention for Food Refusal In the article by Vaz, Volkert, and Piazza (2011) an intervention was applied to address the negative reinforcement function of food refusal by a young boy. For this assignment: Describe your initial reaction to the intervention, especially regarding the use of escape avoidance strategies. Take the position that you oppose the intervention and explain why. Your rationale should specifically address any possible undesired side effects, as well as whether the intervention appeared to violate any ethical codes. Be sure to cite specific codes from the Professional and Ethical Compliance Code for Behavior Analysts. Take the position that you support the intervention and explain why. Your rationale should specifically address any possible benefits and the boy’s right to effective treatment. Revisit your initial reaction to the intervention. Do you still feel the same way, or has your examination of both sides influenced your reaction? Do you believe the intervention is in line with the Professional and Ethical Compliance Code for Behavior Analysts? Explain.
