Providing quality and impactful supervision for aspiring Board-Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBA) is vital for the advancement of our field: Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA). Designing a model for quality supervision is a demanding experience for BCBAs. Limited published resources on how to structure supervision and a responsibility to uphold changing requirements for supervisory practices instituted from the Behavior Analyst Certification Board (BACB) create quite the task for a supervisor. Sellers, Valentino, & LeBlanc (2016) outline five practices that allow for effective supervision. The five practices include (1) Establish an effective supervisor-supervisee relationship, (2) Establish a structured approach with specific content and competencies, (3) Evaluate the effects of your supervision, (4) Incorporate ethics and professional development into supervision, and (5) Continue the professional relationship post-certification. Supervisors should seek to maximize their supervision sessions with supervisees to achieve professional goals, improve interpersonal skills, develop clinical practice and conceptual knowledge, and most importantly cultivate critical thinkers. The panelists from Brett DiNovi and Associates will offer their respective expertise to answer audience questions about the BACB supervision requirements and how to use the five practices to assess service delivery.
