Connections Behavior Planning and Intervention welcomes Adrienne Bradley, BCBA, President of BABA and host of the Shades of ABA Podcast, to outline an ACT-based approach to staff supervision in behavior analysis.
As the BACB has updated their demographic information, we also have had data to show that 57% of the BACB certificants (BCBA/BCaBA) have been certified within the last 6 years. With the increase in certificants at high rates, we must ensure we are implementing quality supervision services. With many of the field being newly certified, we have to look at how we are developing them into leaders. In this presentation we will focus on utilizing ACT principles to help develop the next generation of leaders within Behavior Analysis.
About the Presenter
My name is Adrienne Bradley, and I’m Clinical Director in our Detroit region. I have been a Board Certified Behavior Analyst since 2018, and have worked with Behavior Frontiers since January 2020. However, my passion for helping children with autism started long before that. After I graduated from Central Michigan University in 2014, I started working in the public school system. While I was there, I saw how much of a need there was for students who were diagnosed with autism. This is where my love of Applied Behavior Analysis began.
I decided to go back to school, and started my Masters program at Wayne State University, focusing on Education Psychology with an emphasis on Applied Behavior Analysis. After graduating in 2016, I gained even more experience working with people on the autism spectrum in home, school, and clinic settings. I also did a lot of research, focusing on ACT, parent training, supervision, and diversity, equity, and inclusion within Applied Behavior Analysis. This led me to teaching others about ABA – I’m currently an adjunct professor at Wayne State University, helping to educate the next generation of behavior analysts.
I have also taken time to focus on other things, namely providing education and experiences to disseminate ABA to underserved communities. I co-host the “Shades of ABA” podcast, where we discuss diversity, equity, and inclusion in the ABA field. I have also had the opportunity to be the president of Black Applied Behavior Analysts (BABA), which aims to reduce barriers for African American students, professionals, and parents within the ABA community.
