Why is The Empowered BCBA: Strategies for Preventing and Managing Burnout and Compassion Fatigue important?

After less than a year, my job was literally making me sick.

I had been so excited to start my new role as a clinical director, but in just a few months it was taking a physical toll on me. The endless demands, unreasonable expectations, having to defend every single decision I made. I couldn’t do it anymore. The stress was so bad I could barely get out of bed some mornings.

I talked to my husband and we made the difficult decision that I should leave the company even though I didn’t have another job lined up. This had a huge financial impact on us, but risking my health wasn’t worth the money.

Looking back I realize what I was experiencing was burnout. If I’d had the tools and resources, I could have managed the situation without endangering my health.

The Problem with the Field of ABA

Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBAs) play a critical role in overseeing and implementing ABA strategies for individuals in need. However, recent trends have shown an increasing number of BCBAs leaving the field, raising concerns about the sustainability of ABA as a profession. Several factors have been identified as contributing to this high turnover rate among BCBAs, including

  • Burnout
  • Ethical dilemmas
  • Challenges in maintaining quality supervision

But that’s not the end of it—the problem’s actually worse than that!

  • Workplace culture and the organizational demands placed on BCBAs can create added stress
  • Ultimately leading some to seek alternative career paths
  • This means the clients they’re responsible for can’t get the care they need.

The demand for ABA services is higher than ever, but quality practioners are fleeing the field at an alarming rate!
