Description of Learning CE Event:
In 2022, the Behavior Analyst Certification Board (BACB) instituted regulation that require newly certified behavior analysts (i.e., certified within 1 year) to have monthly contacts with a consulting supervisor (i.e., certified for at least 5 years), if they plan to supervise trainees’ fieldwork. Since this is a new regulation, there is limited literature regarding best practices around how to identify, and then most productive goals for that year of overlap and supervision. Fraidlin et al. (2023) offer recommendations to guide this professional relationship that is new to the field of behavior analysis, but has history in other professional disciplines, such as social work and medical training. In this Learning Event, participants will be asked to read Fraidlin et al. (2023) prior to attendance at the synchronous meeting. During the live event, attendees will discuss authors’ recommendations for how newly certified behavior analysts can create successful relationships with consulting supervisors, while meeting meaningful goals and advancing their clinical and interpersonal skills.
