Evidence Based Staff Training
Evidence Based Staff Training
Acme Behavioral Consultation, Inc., has received another referral. This time, you are asked to join a team of consultants who have been working with Global Ed Charter School. Global Ed is a for-profit organization in Washington, D.C., serving a diverse group of students, culturally and economically. Global Edâ€™s president has reported that behavior incidents have increased since the beginning of the school year in all classes. The president has been lobbying the board for the last two years to develop a behavior management service unit at the school. In addition, she believes that the staff require additional training on basic behavior analytic tactics.
Your Acme supervisor has tasked you with providing initial ideas for an effective staff-training program to be implemented at Global Ed.
For your discussion this week, you are asked to discuss potential staff training plans for Global Ed:
- Identify a specific model for evidence-based staff training.
- Describe the necessary components of your selected staff-training model. Include criteria for completion of training.
- Discuss why the components in your selected model are necessary and why your staff-training model is the best choice.
- Discuss other potential reasons for the increase in inappropriate behaviors at Global Ed. Is staff training the only solution? What other considerations and environmental variables could be evaluated?
Review two of your classmatesâ€™ posts to assess the following:
- Critique your peersâ€™ selected models for staff training. Are any components missing? Include suggestions for additional criteria that could be added.
- Add to your peersâ€™ discussion of other potential causes for the problemâ€™s at Global Ed – excluding staff skill deficits.
