Workshop #W20
CE Offered: PSY/BACB
BACB-Compliant Supervisor Training, Mixed Media Workshop
Friday, May 23, 2014
8:00 AM–3:00 PM
W186 (McCormick Place Convention Center)
Area: PRA/TBA; Domain: Service Delivery
CE Instructor: Karen R. Wagner, Ph.D.
Description: The mixed media BACB-compliant supervision training workshop is back, bigger and better than ever! Incorporating feedback from our Minneapolis annual convention workshop and the many workshops presented in the past year, this session prepares BCBAs to become BACB-approved supervisors. Offered as a six-hour live workshop with an additional two and a half hours online through, participants receive almost nine hours of content while using only six hours of convention time! Through live interaction, scenarios, and video, participants will experience skill building, as well as effective documentation. Additionally, participant trios will engage in supervisory sessions with interesting ethical dilemmas as supervisors, supervisees, and fidelity observers. Because of varied experience, participants will be offered choices of clinical focus at key points in the live workshop. This helps keep all participants invested and engaged with the material. The online material, with an additional three CEUs at no additional cost, includes a review of the workshop material, video scenarios, extensive coverage of the BACB Experience Standards, and opportunities to test understanding of the material. We had record-breaking turnout last year, so sign up early! This training program is based on the BACB Supervisor Training Curriculum Outline but is offered independent of the BACB.
Learning Objectives: At the conclusion of this workshop, the participant will be able to (1) describe the potential outcomes of ineffective supervision, (2) describe the BACB-accepted supervision formats, (3) roleplay behavior skills training, (4) demonstrate how to execute a supervision contract, (5) demonstrate how to deliver performance feedback, and (6) identify the levels of supervision and the requirements for each.
Activities: Lecture, identifying skills and deficits in video scenarios, engaging in small group practice with peer feedback and instructor feedback, question and answer time for understanding the rather complex new rules of supervision.
Audience: Participants should be practicing BCBAs with clinical experience who are already providing supervision or who are in the process of determining if they want to become supervisors.
