Within the life of an ABA professional few things are universal. With different educational backgrounds, areas of professional interest and geographical location, no two ABA professionals possess identical learning histories. The purpose of the supervision experience should be to train future generations of behavior analysts to engage in high quality service delivery; however, for far too long some have implemented a one-size fits all approach. Individualized interventions are the cornerstone of our science; so why is this same approach not taken within the supervision experience? Supervision (absent cultural humility) cannot prepare the next generation of behavior analysts to face the growing needs of service recipients. The infusion of culturally humility into the supervision experience will benefit the field of ABA for generations to come. 

Learning Objectives:

  1. Participants within this presentation will gain an in-depth understanding of cultural humility both in practice and application related to the supervision experience.
  2. Participants within this presentation will identify both personal and professional held biases and how these biases effect the supervision experience. 
  3. Participants within this presentation will identify tangible tools to improve the supervision experience for both supervisors and supervisees.
