Question: 

Starting on page 42 from Cipani’s Punishment article, a discussion of “why doing nothing is a risky venture” is presented. Using the case example depicted, explain why you feel that in some cases allowing ineffective treatment to continue presents an ethical dilemma.

Answer: 

The case “why doing nothing is a risky venture” explains that taking risks is relative and the risk of treatment needs to be weighed against the behavioral problem of the situation. In this case doing nothing is more risky then to actually implement a behavioral plan to stop or punish the unwanted behavior because of the seriousness of the behavior, which is a life threatening for the person who is engaging in the behavioral problem. Now this is in cases where problem behaviors are extremally life threatening and any treatment within the ethical guidelines is appropriate then to no treatment at all even if the treatment plan uses punishment in a form of aversiveness to the patient/client. There are also cases where ineffective treatment present ethical dilemma and might make the unwanted behavior even more frequent or bring about other unwanted behavior in the process of the ineffective treatment. At this point if the treatment is not working or having negative effects on the behavior then the treatment needs to be stopped and revised, so it becomes somewhat of a trial and error situation. Treatments of behavior always have to be monitored and examined in order to know if the treatment is effective or ineffective and changed an revised if its ineffective for the problem behavior (Cipani, 2004).
