Developing a Positive Approach to Supervising and Mentoring

Developing a Positive Approach to Supervising and Mentoring

May 19, 2021 @ 10am PDT / 1pm EDT

Presented by Dr. Linda LeBlanc and Dr. Tyra Sellers

This presentation focuses on approaching supervision and mentoring in a positive and proactive way. Thinking about supervisory in the context of a relationship creates more influential professional interactions that benefit both the supervisor and supervisee. The supervisory relationship should be predicated on clear expectations, effective communication, and positive contingencies. It is important to acknowledge that our past experiences influence our current supervisory relationships. Supervisors can learn to construct their own positive and purposeful approach to supervising and mentoring others. This presentation will include recommended strategies for developing relationships, reflections activities, and activities that can be used with the supervisee.

1.5 Supervision BACB CEUs are offered for this webinar. CEUs are $20 for non-members and free for BHCOE-accredited organizations and members.

Cultivating Contingencies of Joy

Cultivating Contingencies of Joy

June 9, 2021 @ 10am PDT / 1pm EDT

Presented by Dr. Shahla Ala'i

The purpose of this presentation is to provide an overview of practices that nurture joy in the lives of young children with autism, their families and their supporting professionals. The talk is divided into three sections. The first section explores the concept of joy and discusses the role of contingencies in understanding and changing behavior for the better. The second section focuses on the role of evidence-based practice, the need to go beyond reducing problems, and the importance of striving to preventatively and proactively foster healthy relationships at all levels. A program example is included. The final section provides a framework for continued progress by establishing intentional communities of practice. Communities of practice with a mission of increasing joy are likely to encourage ongoing learning, human connections and loving approaches to intervention.
 
This presentation is based, in part, on: Alai & Zueg (2010), Three Considerations; Alai, Toussaint & McGee (2018) Incidental Teaching: Happy Progress; Miller, Re Cruz & Alai (2019) Inherent Tensions and Possibilities: Behavior Analysis and Cultural Responsiveness; Alai-Rosales, et al, (2019) The Big Four; and, Alai & Heinkle-Wolfe (coming in Summer 2021) Between Now and Dreams (a book for parents)
