    Due to the exponential growth of certified behavior analysts in the world, the number of supervisors needed per year requires more and more newly-certified individuals to step into this role. How can a field continue to grow skilled and ethical members when there aren't enough seasoned practitioners to go around? This week, we review the state of supervision in the behavior analytic world and some research-based suggestions for creating a culture that sees high-quality supervision as an ethical pre-requisite for practice.
