**This course will provide the participant with 2 Supervision Learning Type BACB® CEU**
Description of Learning Type CE Event: As a BCBA it is often assumed that you will be a supervisor, but this is no easy feat! It is your role to educate the next generation of BCBAs while ensuring treatment is being implemented with fidelity. Our job is incredibly important for the individuals we serve but it also takes a great toll on us. In this class, we focus on your behavior as a supervisor. You’ll identify your values as a supervisor, learn tools to assess and monitor your effectiveness and determine ways to protect your boundaries. Throughout the workshop, you’ll self-reflect on current practices, set goals for improvements you want to make, and learn tools to establish balance in your life as a professional.
About the Instructor: Peggy initially discovered ABA when I took a position as a Special Education Teacher in the Hawai’i DOE. I worked with students with severe problem behavior, and we focused on communication, life skills, and community-based instruction. Once I became a BCBA, I continued to work in schools but gained additional experience in-clinic, in-home, as well as, in the community. Having a very challenging supervision experience myself, I partnered with Local ABA to provide quality, remote supervision. I’ve been providing remote supervision for the past two years. Additionally, I’ve recently started my own business called PK Behavior Consulting where I provide 1:1 therapy to individuals navigating challenging times in their lives, in addition to, providing parent training, education, and support. I am passionate about using ACT in my practice which has allowed me to step outside of the “traditional” ABA box.
