[pane title=”Abstract and Learning Objectives”]

This webinar will help the practitioner understand the utility of RFT and ACT for their practice without stepping outside of scope and competency.  During this webinar, discussions will explore the boundaries of our scope, how to detect when situations in practice abut such boundaries, and how to move forward without crossing.  Using a functional contextualist (radical behaviorism) framework, participants will be led through the points and counterpoints of how behavior analytic practice should integrate complex language in their interventions.  There will be examples of practitioners moving beyond their scope and discussion of the consequences of such behavior. Additionally, participants will learn the appropriate means to either expand competency, or recruit sufficient support to maintain appropriate practice.    

Learning Objectives:

  • Ability to detect the edges of one’s competency
  • Ability to identify means to expand competency or recruit appropriate support
  • Name three ways that a behavior analytic practitioner could easily cross into another field’s scope
  • Identify three solutions to protect against this inadvertent scope creep
  • Describe how one should and could integrate complex language into their practice

[pane title=”Speaker Information”]

Dr. Joshua K Pritchard earned his doctorate from the University of Nevada-Reno. He is a BCBA-D (Board Certified Behavior Analyst-Doctorate) and currently a faculty member of the Behavior Analysis & Therapy program at Southern Illinois University, Carbondale. He has served on the executive council of the Association for Behavior Analysis International, president of the Association for Science in Autism Treatment, and the president of Tennessee Association for Behavior Analysis.  He is currently serving as the Associate Editor for scientific behavioral journals such as Behavior Analysis in Practice & Behavior Analysis: Research & Practice. Dr. Prtichard has provided behavioral services, assessments, and consultation to school, residential settings, in-home, and in-center settings for just under two decades and is the founder of a school for children with behavior disorders, a behavior-analytic clinic and this year is opening learning labs across five states. In addition to his entrepreneurial development, he has provided consultation to a variety of agencies across the country and internationally using Applied Behavior Analysis and Organizational Behavior Management.  

During his doctoral training, Dr. Pritchard honed his expertise in functional contextualism, radical behaviorism, relational frame theory, and Acceptance and commitment therapy.  He was also very involved in the professionalization of our field with respect to licensure and specifically in the development of one of the first behavior analytic licensure boards (Nevada).  Combinging this expertise and experience, Dr. Pritchard will provide the audience with a solid understanding of how behavior analysts should proceed with the development of our scope without running afoul of licensure laws and avoiding turf wars.
