Autism is a pervasive disorder that impacts 1 out of 59 children in the United States (Center for Disease Control, 2018). Given the rising need for intervention, service delivery providers are faced with many challenges to support children and families. Direct care staff are required to deliver evidence-based interventions and daily instruction that may lead to emotional and physical burn-out. Agencies and schools are faced with delivering high-quality staff training and support systems to ensure direct care staff are provided with the necessary tools and motivation to maintain staff satisfaction and reduce high rates of staff turnover.

This presentation will provide predictors of burnout, strategies to prevent staff burnout, and tactics for ongoing staff support. We will review evidence-based practices for supporting staff through many stressors. The topics discussed will be primarily based in behavior analysis. The information presented will coincide with the ethical responsibilities of Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBA) as supervisors as well as their responsibility to the field of applied behavior analysis.

Learner Outcomes

  • Identify 3 predictors of staff burnout.
  • Identify 3 strategies to prevent staff burnout.
  • Identify 2 tactics to provide ongoing staff support.
