The Agency - Part 1: So You Want To Be A Supervisor?


Join us as we provide a bit of comic relief to the field of behavior analysis. So You Want to Be a Supervisor? - is presented through episodes of The Agency - a sitcom all about BCBA supervision. The Agency shows us what happens when a skilled behavioral clinician is thrown into the role of supervisor/mentor without adequate training. While The Agency puts a funny and entertaining spin on the topic of BCBA Supervision, this eight-hour training covers the current research surrounding supervision and mentorship as required by the BACB Supervisor Training Curriculum Outline. *Participant complaints regarding this or any other BACB CE event requirements violations must first be directed, in writing, to the Relias Learning ACE Coordinator, Rhonda Davin, PhD. Please contact Dr. Davin via email: The ACE Coordinator will make every reasonable attempt to resolve participant complaints; however, should the ACE Coordinator be unable to resolve the complaint, the complainant may file a formal complaint directly with the BACB.
