Cultural Competence as a BCBA

Understand the importance of being culturally diverse as a BCBA. Learn practical tools and mindsets to achieve the crucial goal of becoming a practitioner who respects the cultural beliefs of others and can handle those who don’t yet respect theirs.

As BCBAs, we often need to deal with clients’ families who have a different set of religious beliefs or come from a drastically different culture than ours. Hear tips from the trenches as Tameika Meadows shares her professional experience in handling these differences. After taking this impactful course, you’ll feel enlightened and empowered to deal with the families of your clients who don’t share your culture or beliefs. You’ll also be armed with powerful mindsets and tools to properly view any cultural differences that you find in your clients.
