BACB News: Supervision of Board Certified Behavior Analysts

The supervision of others is an essential activity in applied behavior analysis because of its central role in obtaining BACB certification and in the tiered service-delivery systems often used by behavior analysts. In March 2012, the Association of Professional Behavior Analysts (APBA) and the [Behavior Analyst Certification Board] BACB collaborated on a joint survey of supervision practices. The survey’s two main purposes were to summarize important supervision phenomena for the field and provide relevant information for the BACB’s Supervision Task Force, which was tasked with updating the organization’s supervision and experience standards. An Internet survey was sent to all BACB certificants, student members of APBA, and faculty contacts of BACB approved course sequences who were requested to invite current students to participate. A total of 2,268 individuals responded to the survey. A summary of the survey’s main findings is now available in Issue #39 of the APBA Reporter. more
