Practicum at Halo

Approved ABA Practicum Site

Halo Behavioral Health is a proud affiliate of several local colleges and universities (e.g., University of Southern California, Pepperdine University, The Chicago School of Professional Psychology), under which we serve as an approved practicum site for graduate students seeking their degree and certification in the field of behavior analysis. Accordingly, our trainees undergo extensive and ongoing performance-based training that complements masters level coursework to prepare for the board certification exam and a fulfilling career in the field.

Halo utilizes an evidence-based training model that blends intensive didactic instruction, accurate modeling, practice via role play, and in-depth in vivo supervision to teach the specific skills critical for supporting client needs as well as for taking on supervisory roles.

In line with Halo’s mission to judiciously disseminate the application of behavior analysis, we aim to cultivate a team of extraordinary Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBAs) to provide superior services and further the field of behavior analysis.

Supervision for practitioners seeking board certification

We provide supervised independent fieldwork (SIF) hours for individuals who are completing their coursework online or are attending universities that do not offer a practicum course.

In addition, all direct intervention staff (i.e., RBTs, BCBAs, and BCBA-Ds) are required to undergo and earn certification from Safety-CareTM Behavioral Safety Training Program. This program provides the skills and competencies necessary to effectively prevent, minimize, and manage novel, critical behavioral challenges with dignity, safety, and the possibility of change.

Finally, all direct intervention staff (i.e., RBTs, BCBAs, and BCBA-Ds) are required to undergo The Child Abuse Mandated Reporter Training Project and earn certification. This consists of self-guided, profession-specific training modules designed to address the specific concerns of professionals for identifying and reporting suspected neglect and abuse.
