technique that can be used, but before carrying out contingent skin shock therapy ethical considerations should be considered. Conclusion Conduct analysts obey the standards of technical and ethical compliance, and the use of penalty procedures is non ethical before strengthening techniques are exhausted. According to contingent skin shock therapy, behavioral analysts can only use this approach when the reinforcement measures have not been successful for their clients and they have been well qualified to administer penalties efficiently. While contingent skin shock therapy is evidence-based, some conduct critics reject the treatment of contingent skin shock. There are both advantages and disadvantages of contingent skin shock therapy, but an effective cure for serious behavioral issues has been shown. The author admits that dependent skin shock therapy is used, but this would be one of a customer's last treatments. She recognizes that it is evidence-based and, if all other calming methods are used, she would ethically use the therapy.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
