Transfer of training ethics

Professional psychologists serve their corporate, agency, and individual clients most effectively when they can assist people in directing their own learning. Some critics may argue that transferring training responsibilities from the employer to the employee can create ethical and legal dilemmas; for example, self-trained employees may miss important safety considerations that result in possible injuries to themselves or customers. 

How might ethical plans for self-regulation be constructed by behaviorist, social cognitive, information processing, and constructivist theorists?
