Remote Fieldwork Supervision for BCBA® Trainees prepares BCBAs for supervising certification candidates, providing structure, scope, and sequence for supervision, as well as tactical recommendations for providing independent fieldwork supervision in a distance context. The book helps to resolve common challenges in supervision arrangements, such as maintaining professional behavior and encouraging practitioner self-care. The book follows the Behavior Analyst Certification Board’s Fifth Edition Task List, and then goes beyond the required 8-hour supervision training to teach important clinical skills, such as ACT, RFT, executive function skills, OBM, and curriculum-based measures.
