Description: Increased standards for supervision are needed for the betterment of the field. However, it is a challenge for organizations to meet these standards. Throughout the ages, experts in all trades have passed along their wisdom through apprenticeship opportunities. An apprenticeship model to mentor, educate, and train students on the science of human behavior will be discussed, including a summary of the model, typical supervision activities, and meeting schedules. In addition, the presentation will include billing considerations and general logistical issues associated within an apprenticeship model. The content of this workshop is based upon the article, "The Apprentice: An Innovative Approach to Meet the Behavior Analysis Certification Board's Supervision Standards," published in Behavior Analysis in Practice.
Learning Objectives: At the conclusion of the workshop, participants will be able to: (1) Identify the key responsibilities in an apprenticeship model for BCBA supervisors; (2) Identify the key responsibilities of the supervisees to gain fieldwork experience to become BCBAs; (3) Create performance-based objectives relevant to what the supervisee will both experience and accomplish through the apprenticeship model; (4) Identify and manage logistical and billing considerations that are part of the apprenticeship model; (5) Pinpoint key objectives to measure the apprentice's performance on a monthly basis.
Activities: Instructional strategies include: lecture, discussion, and small group breakout
Audience: For BCBA practitioners who provide supervision under the Behavior Analysis Certification Board's requirements.
Content Area: Practice
