Description: Given the number of skilled clinicians and the increasing number of clientele, doing more with less is always a challenge for today's BCBA. In the clinical setting BCBAs are often faced with the task of ensuring effective implementation of treatment plans provided by multiple people. We use behavior skills training, or BST, to teach staff using competency-based training tools. In addition, this approach, combined with a train-the-trainer model, allows a BCBA consultant to reach a maximum number of staff with minimum amount of resources.
Learning Objectives: At the conclusion of the workshop, participants will be able to: (1) Discuss and implement behavior skills training to teach a skill; (2) Discuss and implement competency-based training measures; (3) Discuss and implement a train-the-trainer approach.
Activities: Workshop activities include material presentation through lecture and demonstrations, discussion, and small group activities
Audience: This workshop level is appropriate for all BCBAs
Content Area: Practice
Instruction Level: Intermediate
