How ACT and OBM Benefit Your ABA Agency
About This Webinar
The nature of ABA work, as a relatively stressful workplace with high staff turnover, is perfectly suited for Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT) processes that can transform the functions of aversive work settings into ways of being that achieve valued life directions. We will discuss some previous ACT work within the broader context of Organizational Behavior Management (OBM). We will look at the organization from the standpoint of individual-level performance as well as the larger organization as a behavioral system comprised of Interlocking Behavioral Contingencies (IBCs).
This webinar will provide you with simple strategies to use in your work to help create a more committed staff that will ultimately improve the quality of services, reduce turnover, and save money for your agency.
- Define values from an ACT perspective.
- Describe how to use the Performance Diagnostic Checklist-Human Services and its purpose.
- Describe work processes in terms of Interlocking Behavioral Contingencies.
- Pinpoint work processes in their organization and design change interventions based on Key Performance Indicators.
