Contingent Electric Skin Shock

How sloppy science has lead to abhorrent ethics

On Friday 28th of May @ 2pm GMT+1 the Munster Behaviour Analyst Forum in partnership with ABA Ireland will host a panel discussion on Contingent Electric Skin Shock as a purported treatment for challenging behaviour.

This Continuing Education Event is being held to publicly support the International Association for the Scientific Study of Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (IASSIDD) call for an immediate ban on the use of contingent electric skin shock (CESS) as a purported treatment for challenging behaviour. We will amplify the IASSIDD’s call for all organisations involved in the lives of people with disabilities to issue public statements condemning such practices. We call on journal editors to issue statements of concern regarding the claims made in their publications on the use of CESS.
