Do you Provide a High-quality Supervised Experience?
Date & Time: Thursday, July 28, 2022 | 10:35 a.m. – 11:25 a.m. Central
Location: Renaissance Nashville Hotel, Grand Ballroom or virtual via BehaviorLive
Speaker: Dr. Ellie Kazemi
High-quality supervised experience is an essential component of behavior analytic training. Theoretically, the supervision guidelines provided by the Behavior Analyst Certification Board (BACB) protect candidates as supervisees who seek certification or licensure to practice behavior analysis. Additionally, there is hope that graduate training in behavior analysis provides some quality control regarding the training sites at which candidates accrue supervision experience hours. However, unless the supervised experience is offered at the institution where the graduate coursework is offered, many higher education training programs do not have the time or resources to review external training sites to assess quality. Therefore, candidates enrolled in master’s degree programs are often on their own to find suitable sites that offer an ethical and professional supervised experience that meets best-practice recommendations. As a result, the quality of the supervised experiences of candidates preparing to become professional behavior analysts differ dramatically. In this presentation, I will review the process of standard development, the ABAI Accreditation standards, the empirical evidence and best-practice guidelines for supervision, and the results of data we gathered from our diverse stakeholder groups about the quality of supervision.
Female Entrepreneurship in ABA – What Else Can I Do With My BCBA?
Date & Time: Thursday, July 28, 2022 | 3:10 p.m. – 4:40 p.m. Central
Location: Renaissance Nashville Hotel, Broadway 2 or virtual via BehaviorLive
Panel Participants: Dana Meller, Sara Litvak, Sarah Trautman, and Tanya Scott
In this panel, a group of female behavior analysts who own a variety of businesses in ABA will talk about their experiences starting their own companies. This will be a conversation centered around two themes: Female Business Owners in ABA and What Else Can I Do With My BCBA. These female entrepreneurs will share their thoughts and experiences around how they started their companies and thrived, as well as discuss the various other ways one can use their BCBA Certificate to support their community and the world. This conversation will surely inspire others to explore many of the alternative areas in our field where a BCBA Certificate can be utilized. Time will be reserved for questions and attendee participation as we explore this topic together.
