Help Your Staff Be the Best They Can Be: Behavioral Skills Training

1 hours, 25 minutes
1.5 BACB

“Training staff properly is one of the most important things that we as behavior analysts can do.  Whether it be staff working for you, or a parent of the child that you’re working with, we want to make sure that staff are trained properly in any assessments or behavior change procedures that we may ask them to do.”

Joshua Lipschultz, PhD, BACB-D


Onboarding staff is important in all job settings, both inside and outside the field of behavior analysis. Gaps in training can stem from several issues. Perhaps training for an entry-level position includes training videos, but no real-life component, or perhaps supervisors teach the necessary skills once and do not ensure that these skills are mastered.  Fortunately, Behavioral Skills Training (BST) is an empirically proven training method that is simple and can be applied in many settings.  In this course, subject matter expert Joshua Lipschultz covers the history and components of Behavioral Skills Training, giving detail on why this type of training can be effective.
