Culturally Responsive Supervision (3 Supervision CEU's):

As of January 1st, 2022, behavior analysts will be ethically obligated to provide supervisees and trainees with supervision that actively incorporates topics related to diversity (Standard 4.07 of the Ethics Code for Behavior Analysts, 2020).  However, many behavior analysts have received little or no formal education or supervised experience in providing culturally responsive services themselves (Beaulieu et al., 2018).  In this presentation, we will review the components of culturally responsive care, including self-assessment, client assessment, and treatment.  As part of our review, we will evaluate several different tools found in the behavior-analytic literature (e.g., Fong et al., 2016; Garcia, 2018) and the behavior-analytic research supporting culturally responsive treatment. The final portion of this presentation will consist of the identification and review of strategies for incorporating topics related to diversity into our supervision and training.

Ethical Issues in Supervision (1 Supervision CEU, 2 Ethics CEU's):

Behavior analysts providing supervision and training to supervisees and trainees are faced with a host of potential ethical issues every day. The Ethics Code for Behavior Analysts (2020) provides guidance for many of the most common issues.  In this presentation, after reviewing relevant sections of the Ethics Code for Behavior Analysts, we will use supervision scenarios to (a) identify potential ethical issues, (b) generate proactive strategies and safeguards, and (c) problem-solve ethical resolutions to the issues presented in the scenarios. Participants will be encouraged to develop their own scenarios for review and discussion.
