In a company that provides Applied Behavior Analytic (ABA) services, delivery of high-quality treatment to clients should be the terminal and utmost goal. That same company goal now needs to apply to those clinicians who are delivering that treatment to its clients. In a fast pace environment that is ever-changing with policy and standards updates, it’s easy to burn out. Without proper training, employee incentives, leadership opportunities, and opportunities to refine skills through continued education, individuals who receive and depend on behavior consultation and services will ultimately suffer. According to Reed, Hirst and Howard (2013) a critical feature of evidence-based Organizational Behavior Management (OBM) practices is full implementation of empirically validated interventions. Therefore, providing staff with an abundance of opportunities to interact with and support clients is a critical investment of resources for service-delivery organizations. In this panel, panelists will briefly describe and answer audience questions related to research-based strategies for selecting staff for leadership opportunities, developing and evaluating staff training programs for implementation of evidence-based treatment, and implementing effective coaching models and follow-up techniques.
