Supervision is paramount within applied behavior analysis. This is particularly true in the case of Board Certified Behavior Analysts® (BCBAs®) and trainees (i.e., those accruing hours and experience to become BCBAs). Given the importance of supervision in shaping future BCBAs (and subsequently the field of applied behavior analysis), researchers have emphasized supervision practices as they relate to BCBAs and trainees. However, what type of work is occurring in this area, such as empirical intervention studies or provision of supervisory recommendations through discussion-style articles, needs to be clarified. Therefore, we conducted the first and most comprehensive systematic review of supervision research related to BCBAs and trainees. Results indicated that most of the articles and work pertaining to BCBA supervision are discussion-style articles, with several survey studies and few empirical intervention studies. We discuss implications and areas for future supervision research.

Objectives

  • Participants will be able to identify and discuss the major themes in the supervision of BCBAs as outlined in the systematic review, such as ethical considerations, the impact of virtual supervision, and the need for empirical validation of supervisory practices.
  • Participants will critically assess the gaps in current research on BCBA supervision as highlighted in the article and propose future directions for research, including the development of empirically validated supervision tools and practices.
