Behavior Analytic Supervision and Training: What it is, What it isn’t, and How to do it
In addition to our client-facing work, behavior analysts are tasked with training and supervising others in the implementation of behavior analytic programming, including, but not limited to, individuals already credentialed by the BACB® (i.e., BCaBAs and RBTs) as well as those pursuing BACB® certification (i.e., trainees accruing fieldwork hours). The BACB® has increasingly emphasized the importance of supervision and training, such as through specific professional development requirements of supervisors and, most recently, by requiring dedicated course content in supervision and training for future BACB® certificants. In this workshop, participants will learn how to assess performance deficits, design behavior-analytic training programs, and supervise in accordance with our ethical guidelines and recent research on best practices. Additionally, participants will learn how to self-assess their competence as a supervisor and their capacity to provide supervision in accordance with relevant regulatory guidelines. This training program is based on the BACB® Supervisor Training Curriculum Outline (2.0) but is offered independent of the BACB®.
