1 CULTURAL CEU & 1 ETHICS CEU
OUTSIDE OF THE BIG BOX – 1 ETHICS CEU
ZACHARY STEVENS, M.S., LBA, BCBA
What is happening to ABA? Why does it seem like many of our colleagues are prepared to leave the field? In this presentation, we will attempt to answer these questions by confronting some of the variables which have contributed to the growth and distribution of behavior analysis. The ethics of various treatment and supervision models employed by all sizes of ABA organizations, from single-clinician to conglomerate, will be dissected and discussed.
A MODEL FOR COMMUNITY-INFORMED AND COMMUNITY-ASSESSED PRACTICE- 1 CULTURAL CEU
PABLO JUÁREZ, M.Ed., LBA, BCBA
There are several important issues facing the field of behavior analysis and it’s not just the need for better public relations. There is the need to reconsider how we approach training and practice, which can and should begin with substantive community and shareholder engagement. Guidance from, and accountability to the people and communities we serve helps us develop better and more creative goals and strategies while focusing on long-term outcomes rooted in self-determination. Within this presentation we will present a model for community-informed and community-assessed practice, which focuses on social validity at the individual, organizational, and cultural levels.
