Workshop #W87
CE Offered: PSY/BACB — 
CANCELED: Further Considerations in the Delivery of Effective Behavior Analytic Supervision
Saturday, May 28, 2016
4:00 PM–7:00 PM
Montreux 3, Swissotel
Area: PRA; Domain: Service Delivery
CE Instructor: Laura B. Turner, Ph.D.
LAURA B. TURNER (University of Saint Joseph)
Description: Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBA) supervising those pursuing certification by the Behavior Analyst Certification Board (BACB) are now required to develop and maintain competency in the evidence-based supervisory skills identified by the BACB (BACB, 2012). Included in these skills is the ability to design a supervision contract, set performance expectations, implement behavioral skills training for a wide variety of technical, ethical and professional behaviors, deliver frequent positive and corrective performance feedback, and evaluate the effectiveness and acceptability of supervision. At face value, many of these skills appear straightforward; however, complexities arise, for example, when individualizing expectations, providing difficult (i.e., relatively more subjective) corrective feedback, seeking feedback from the supervisee (i.e., dual-feedback), and objectively defining and monitoring supervisor and supervisee behavior. The purpose of this workshop is to discuss these and other complexities of supervision and present considerations for each in light of published research and clinical experiences.
Learning Objectives: At the conclusion of the workshop, the participant will be able to: (1) identify components of effective behavior analytic supervision consistent with the BACB Supervisor Training Curriculum; (2) discuss considerations in conducting supervision practices in applied settings; (3) utilize methods to evaluate supervisory effectiveness and supervisee satisfaction.
Activities: The format combines lecture, structured group discussion, and live and video demonstrations.
Audience: BCBAs or BCBA-Ds who are providing supervision to those pursuing a BACB certification.
Content Area: Practice
