How is everyone holding up? Have you gone stir crazy yet? I live in CT and our kids have been out of school since Thursday, March 12th! Lord, hear our prayer!

A number of people have reached out about our Webinar schedule going forward (I promise it is forthcoming). But additionally, a few of you requested if you could obtain the recording from a previous webinar.

We do not normally sell our recordings because I, personally, feel that the synchronous option allows for quality interaction with Q&A. However, given the current situation with many conferences canceled, I will make the following webinars available for purchase at $10 each. This INCLUDES your ability to earn BACB CEs.

Available recordings include:

Our FREE journal club met on Monday night. We discussed a wonderful article by Katie Lynn Garza, Heather M. McGee, Yannick A. Schenk, & Rebecca R. Wiskirchen. You may access the article here. If you are supervising trainees (formerly known as candidates), this is a must read article! Additionally, the authors have provided a number of electronic resources which you may access here by scrolling to the bottom of the page. While the article was published in 2018, the BACB published a new Supervision Curriculum (2.0) in 2019 so readers are encouraged to read that new curriculum as a supplement to this article.

The authors discuss the process of supervision for trainees in behavior analysis. They discuss the importance of a systematic approach to supervision combined with the need to utilize the literature from Organizational Behavior Management (OBM) to guide us in this process.

The authors discuss the importance of establishing a supervisory relationship and completing a skills assessment. The authors then describe how to use a job model to outline the performance expectations across various activities within a job. Each activity is then broken down to various steps/tasks which are then cross-referenced to the BACB Task List. For this, the authors provide a great resource which readers may incorporate into their own supervisory practices. The authors provide examples for how to set goals with trainees. They provide a great resource for this as well.

Our journal club attendees loved all the resources provided in this article. However, I personally enjoyed the story board resource. In this, the authors demonstrated how to take the Behavioral Skills Training (BST) and apply new learning within. For example, if you are teaching your trainee how to complete an IISCA, then you take the storyboard and break down the different steps of BST and apply to IISCA and how you will teach your trainee about IISCA.

Finally, the authors describe the importance of on-going progress monitoring and feedback for your trainees. They discuss the need to collect observational data on your supervisee and then the need to graph that progress. In our journal club, we discussed several different ways to measure and graph progress of trainees within the supervision process.

We hope you enjoy this article as much as we did. If you are interested in joining our free journal club, email us at info at applied behavioral strategies dot com. Participants can earn up to 12 continuing education credits per year (in the area of learning).
