ABA 603: Management and Supervision for Behavior Analysts

This course focuses on the practice of applied behavior analysis in a variety of settings, with a strong emphasis on a behavioral approach to management and supervision. Behavior analysts frequently play administrative roles; thus, an understanding of evidence-based personnel management and supervision is important. This course will cover staff training and performance management. It will also focus on evidence-based and competency-based clinical supervision. Many behavior analysts work as consultants in human service settings, and many others work in settings serving individuals who exhibit difficulties other than developmental disabilities. In addition to the basic principles of applied behavior analysis studied in previous courses, there are other issues important for behavior analysts to know about to be able to successfully consult and work in settings both related and unrelated to developmental disabilities. This course will present these other issues as well. This course provides credit hours toward educational qualifications required to sit for the behavior analysis certification examination.
