Rescheduling Announcement

Due to the national rail and tube strikes due to take place on 9 and 10 November we have rescheduled the Speakers' Series to take place as follows:

Dates and Venue

               Thursday 12th and Friday 13th January 2023

               Friends House, 173-177 Euston Road, London, NW1 2BJ. 

We are pleased to announce registration is now OPEN for our first in-person event since 2019.

This Speakers’ Series will take place in January 2023 with 1.5 days of continued professional development, CPD, on topics of racism in behaviour analysis and the launch of the UKBA (cert)!

There will be presentations from three accomplished behaviour analysts: Sheila Sekasi, Leah Fennema and Maggie Hoerger.

Sheila Sekasi will present a workshop looking at what racism is and its impact on an institutional and systemic level, as well as different types of racism.  Behaviour Analysis principles will be explored in the development and maintenance of racism and how Behaviour Analysis can be used to make a change.

Leah Fennema and Maggie Hoerger will introduce the UKBA (cert),  the routes to becoming a UKBA (cert) and provide behaviour analysts with the knowledge they need to supervise trainees using the UKBA (cert) competency framework.

Over the past two years, the UK-SBA has consulted with consumers, practitioners, and academics to develop academic and supervision standards that meet the needs of our community. We are delighted to share the details of the UKBA (cert) – the UK-SBA’s post graduate credential in behaviour analysis.

The foundation of the UKBA (cert) is a competency-based model of supervision. The competencies are organised around our values as behaviour analysts and should provide UK trainees with the skills they need to be ethical and competent behaviour analysts.

The new standards will come into practice in 2023 to prepare candidates to sit the UKBA (cert) exam from 2026. These sessions will be of particular interest to those who provide professional supervision, and those practitioners who wish to become certified.

This event will be subsidised by the UK-SBA with one flat fee allowing you to attend both days as we will be introducing the new UKBA(cert).  As always discounted registration fees are available to UK-SBA members so please log in to your account before registering for the Speakers’ Series.  All CPDs are included in the registration fee.

We hope to see you in London!
