OBM PRACTICES FOR BEHAVIOR ANALYSTS AS BUSINESS OWNERS
Instructed by: Manuel "Manny" Rodriguez, M.S., BCBA
BACB CEUS: 3.5 (2.5 Learning: General and 1 Ethics)
Abstract: For many practitioners, we are faced with challenges related to staff performance, productivity and efficiency, business related matters, and complex change across the organization we work for or lead. Fortunately, there exists within our own field research- based practice in the context of the workplace, namely organizational behavior management (OBM). For decades now, OBM practitioners and researchers have identified a series of tools and techniques to improve and sustain human performance in organizational settings. Many ABA practitioners do not get educated or trained in OBM formally, and over the last several years many OBM practitioners have begun introducing OBM to the ABA clinical practitioner to close the gap. The focus of this 3.5 credit CEU workshop is to provide OBM practices for ABA practitioners who are interested or are already pursuing launching their own business. The learning objectives for this workshop are to: (1) Identify the four core OBM concepts and principles for the business owner; (2) List the challenges for each core concept and principle and potential solutions to resolve the challenges; (3) List the common performance challengers ABA companies face and research based solutions; (4) List the 5 P’s of an OBM Project.; (5) Review how to apply the 7 dimensions of ABA to an OBM work scope; (6) Review a stage gate approach to managing an OBM project; (7) Review various practices in running an ABA company ethically; (8) Identify organizational systems to support the practitioner and the business; (9) Understand common issues ABA business owners ask about and how to address them from an OBM and business perspective.
BEHAVIOR ANALYSIS AND CULTURAL DIVERSITY: BEST PRACTICES
Instructed by: Adriana Rodriguez, M.A., BCBA
BACB CEUS: 1 Learning (General)
Abstract: In recent years, the topic of including diversity awareness within applied behavior analysis has been widely discussed. As we grow as a field, so is the diversity of individuals that we are likely to work with. Individuals from different parts of the world and with different values, beliefs, attitudes, etc. It is important to keep these differences in mind when working with our clients. The purpose of this presentation is to provide the viewer with specific skills that can be use when working with families with a diverse cultural background. Throughout the presentation, examples and current research on the topic as supplemental materials to the learning objectives will be introduced. Participants will be able to: (1) Define culture as behavior analysts; (2) Review the importance of understanding culture as a behavior analyst; (3) Develop cultural awareness skills; (4) Provide culture-centered interventions; and (5) Review current research in applied behavior analysis related to culture.
