Reflections on Ethical, Supervisory, Research, and Cultural Issues

  • Robert J. Kohlenberg
  • Mavis Tsai


In this final chapter, we will discuss some of the ethical issues involved in the conduct of functional analytic psychotherapy (FAP). We will then describe how the principles of FAP can be applied to the supervisory process. Then, we turn our attention to the important question of “Where are the data” and our somewhat unconventional ideas of how to go about collecting these data. Finally, for something really different, we will discuss such topics as fast food, spirituality, and how the principles underlying FAP can be broadened to address the problems facing our culture in general.
