Ensuring Integrity

This 120-minute recorded webcast provides an overview of the use of applied behavior analytic principles to increase data accuracy and treatment fidelity while teaching techniques to gain staff buy-in. Data collection may be considered the cornerstone of applied behavior analysis. Data determines how behavior analysts make decisions about behavioral interventions. Data is often collected by other staff, not necessarily behavior analysts. Behavior analysts therefore must ensure that the collected data is accurate and reliable. Staff must also be trained to implement interventions with fidelity. Common issues in the full implementation of behavior interventions involve inaccurate data recording, observer/"implementation" drift, and inaccurate implementation of behavioral interventions. Staff training begins at an organizational, macro-level to ensure the availability of resources. In the field of applied behavior analysis, particularly in work involving individuals with disabilities, job positions at all levels may be stressful. The amount of work needed for the care of individuals with a disability can be daunting. Implementing behavioral strategies with fidelity is crucial to ensure accurate analysis of interventions and prevent staff from engaging in ineffective behavioral interventions. This presentation will discuss the components of effective behavioral intervention: accurate implementation of behavioral strategies, data collection, and methods to increase staff buy-in and decrease staff burnout. A review of the literature will be explored to identify effective methods for implementing all components of an effective behavioral intervention.
