Description

 

In graduate school and supervised concurrent or post-graduate training, most behavioral health professionals learn the skills that they need to work with clients to promote positive behavioral outcomes. When those professionals decide that they want to start their own private practice, agency, or consulting group, many may lack the skills necessary to properly represent themselves and their work on the internet. A good first impression and an easy to use, attractive, and frequently updated website that reflects your professional services is part of developing an online persona that is appealing to consumers. Nevertheless, ethics and security should be the first thing a professional considers when developing and maintaining their website. Participants will leave the event prepared to create and maintain a website that promotes their behavioral health services while adhering to the ethical guidelines and standards of major organizations that represent behavioral health professionals.

Presenter Adrienne Fitzer, founder and CEO of ABAC,has over 20+ years experience in the field of autism. In 2013 she taught herself to develop a WordPress website when she decided to start ABAC, an online continuing education center that offers live webinars presented by industry experts.. After countless hours of reading blogs, watching videos, engaging technical support professionals, and literally thousands of errors, Adrienne developed a website that works well, is visually appealing and is designed to remain in compliance with the standards and guidelines of the major organizations that grant ABAC ACE provider/sponsor status.

 

Learning Objectives:

  • Discuss the ethical and security considerations one should take when creating and maintaining a website based on the standards, codes, and guidelines and the codes of ethics of other major organizations that represent behavioral health professionals.
  • Identify content that is acceptable to use on their website and content which should be excluded.
  • List ways to ways to ethically drive inbound traffic to the website.
  • Discuss why professionals should use a website vs. a social media page to represent their practice.

Adrienne Fitzer, M.A., BCBA, started working with students with autism in the Washington, D.C. area 20 years ago as an undergraduate majoring in psychology at the University of Maryland. After graduating Phi Beta Kappa, she continued  working in the field and attended the Learning Processes Sub-Doctoral Program in Psychology at the Graduate Center and Queens College of the City University of New York. She holds a Masters Degree from Queens College in Psychology, and, as of publication of this bio, is the only registered Board Certified Behavior Analyst in Union County, NJ to hold the certification since 2003.

Ms. Fitzer completed her doctoral course work, on campus, in the Learning Processes Program offered by the Graduate Center, City University of New York at Queens College which at the time was one of few programs in the world accredited by the Association for Behavior Analysis International. As a doctoral student, Adrienne was a recipient of a teaching fellowship, a research fellowship, co-chaired on campus conferences, and spent much of her time working with Dr. Lanny Fields in his stimulus equivalence research lab.

Ms. Fitzer has co-edited two books on ABA and Autism, Autism Spectrum Disorders: Applied Behavior Analysis, Evidence and Practice (2007, 2013) and Language and Autism: Applied Behavior Analysis, Evidence and Practice (2009). Her research is published in the Journal of the Experimental Analysis of  Behavior and she has presented on behavior analysis at conferences and workshops.

From 2006-2012, Adrienne Fitzer  provided quality applied behavior analysis services to children with autism in public schools. In 2011, Ms. Fitzer realized that she could combine her passion for teaching applied behavior analysis and working with those who care for and work with learners with autism and related disorders by focusing on parent and professional training. She opened The Applied Behavior Analysis Center (ABAC) in 2013 to achieve that professional dream. Her current interests include ethical behavior of professionals who have, or who are developing an internet presence, efficient but accurate data collection, and online consumer behavior.
