Sessions

≪Organizer Abstract≫
This invited symposium introduces the first Behavior Analyst Certification Board (BACB)-approved course sequence for Japanese speakers seeking certification as Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBAs) or Board Certified Assistant Behavior Analysts (BCaBA), to be provided by the Multicultural Alliance of Behavior Analysts (MultiABA) in 2016. The symposium presenters will discuss BACB's work and achievement in terms of disseminating ABA internationally through universally established scientific and ethical standards, and the implications of addressing the linguistic, cultural, and "academic-historical" differences accross the nations. What are the challenges for Japanese behavior analytic practitioners who seek these credentials. What are the advantages to becoming the future Japanese BCBAs and BCaBAs? Why does Japan need these international credentials now? Who will benefit from international credentialing and how? These questions and more will be explored from board members of BACB, MultiABA, and a distinguished behavior analyst. All are welcome to join and celebrate this new development.
