"The Ethics of Supervision: Being Responsible for the Shaping of Future Behavior Analysts"
Wednesday, March 15, 2017 9:30 am - 11:30 am Eastern (Register on ABAC Website)
Abstract: Applied behavior analysis has shown its worth in the treatment of autism and other developmental disabilities, as well in other areas of human endeavor. A competent behavior analyst must certainly understand the academic and conceptual foundations and principles of our field, but also must be able to competently implement behavior analytic practices. Although academic preparation may have some indirect influence on competent practice, it is the role of supervision that fundamentally and most directly impacts the shaping of good quality behavioral practice. This webinar will explore the importance of behavioral supervision at the individual, field, and conceptual level, as well as provide examples of both good and poor supervisory practices. The impact of supervision on the future of applied behavior analysis will be explored, starting with the hypothesis that if our field is to survive and maintain its current strong and positive reputation in society, the quality of behavioral supervision being provided to behaviorists-in-training must be ethical, based on research findings, and a high quality of competence.
