Breaking the Cycle
In the field of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA), a troubling cycle has taken root. Our discipline, once filled with scientists and innovators, is struggling to keep up with the demand of ABA therapy with qualified and competent clinicians. No, I'm not talking about RBT, but about BCBA's!
The huge demand for ABA therapy has led to an increased number of BCBA's entering the field, but with a lack of high-quality supervised fieldwork experiences and a lack of support for new BCBA's, our field is struggling to keep up with the professional and ethical principles we set out to achieve. ABC Behavior Training's primary mission is to address this issue at the level of supervision for BCBA candidates, but for those that are already BCBA's, what options are there?
Whether you are a new BCBA, an experienced BCBA, or a leader in the field, the BCBA Career Intensive will help you with
Professionalism: Learning how to navigate the business and professionalism side of being a behavior analyst is vital to success in our field. We will go over career options, the do's and don'ts when joining a new company, and soft skills.
Ethics: Ethics plays a part in so many facets of our job. We will discuss ethics as it relates to company procedures, clients, and common ethical issues that behavior analysts might face on the job.
Staff Management: Behavior analysts get trained in the science of ABA, but not always how to apply these skills with their team and others they have to manage. We will talk about how to manage and support RBT's and provide effective supervision to BCBA candidates.
Case Management: Having the conceptual knowledge of common procedures and practices from our coursework doesn't always translate into the complex cases we face on the job. We will cover assessments, report writing, goal writing, program implementation, challenging behaviors, and parent training.
"I've taken many online CEUs and Melissa is the best, most detailed presenter I have ever studied with."

Assessments & Reports
Our fourth month will focus on the various assessment methods in ABA turning them into detailed reports to demonstrate medical necessity and reduce denials.
Soft Skills & Supervision
Our third month will focus on the soft skills needed for our position as BCBA's and how to provide effective and high-quality supervision to BCBA students.
In our second month, we will help you achieve a better work/life balance by covering time management for all the tasks you have to juggle and how to motivate and manage your direct therapy staff.
The BCBA Career
In our first month, we will look at the different job settings for typical BCBA positions as well as company-related ethics that you may encounter, such as contracts, non-competes, and more.
