Connections Behavior Planning and Intervention is excited to welcome Emily Wilson, BCBA, and Elizabeth Matthews, BCBA, for a webinar for Behavior Analysts! This event will address OBM approaches to supporting employee wellness.
Behavior science is powerful. As behaviorists, we use tools to build repertoires and relationships that facilitate meaningful change for the individuals we serve. All too often we neglect to give our professional relationships the same careful consideration. In this presentation, attendees will interact with the presenters to develop applicable strategies for identifying and promoting a healthy workplace. Together we will determine how to identify common problems among helping professionals, like burnout and care fatigue. We will explore strategies for supporting mental and physical well-being through supervisory relationships. Finally, we will discuss systems designed to encourage wellness in the workplace. Attendees will leave with actionable items to pursue organic engagement among colleagues.
