Title: Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Organizational Behavior Management for the ABA Practitioner
Abstract: Organizational Behavior Management (OBM) is the application of behavior analysis toward the improvement of performance in business settings. Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is a behavior analytic approach to behavior change based primarily on the language processes of verbally sophisticated adults. ABA practitioners utilize OBM every day in their work supervising front line staff and providing performance feedback. The nature of ABA work, as a relatively stressful workplace with high staff turnover, is perfectly suited for ACT. Essential ACT processes related to values-clarification, goal-setting, mindfulness, and perspective taking, can transform the functions of aversive work settings into ways of being that achieve valued life directions. This session 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.
