Burnt Out BCBA to
Balanced Business Owner
6-month ACT Mentorship Boot camp
for BCBAs Transitioning to their best relationship with work on their own terms!
For real- most BCBAs I know are Burnt out AF... that burnt out status impacts not only us but also how we show up for our clients. And the consequences of that clinical burn out are not pretty.
One reason I think burn out is happening is that in grad school we are taught that ABA is for all humans- but realistically we are all herded towards the same agency or school intervention jobs with a slim range of population experience.
But what is also true is that in those roles we are coaching parents, we are coaching staff, we are coaching teachers or other team members on the principals of behavior.
the way we work though is usually a problem- with THE WAY we work and being able to find a more
could you be willing to believe there could be another way?
a way where you could do the work you love in a way that allows you to love the way you live to? That is what this bootcamp is all about :)
Specifically around the idea of creating a life style coaching business. Check out the video above to hear my free workshop on how I switched from a BCBA to a Coach!
Let’s talk about what is included in the Boot Camp:
The first part of this group is all about deconstructing your burnout- where you are now- and shifting to learning the skills of life balance from an ACT based perspective & explaining ACT and how we are doing it, as we go!
Week 1- Life balance
-Your business isn't going to really matter if your still burnt out! So lets find your version of life balance and bust the burn out at the beginning!
Week 2- BCBA Self Identity
-How we define ourselves and what is "good or bad"can really trip us up in the background of our minds, so lets flush it out and rewrite them more intentionally!

Week 4- Burnout & Selfishness
-two more brain bully thoughts that we get to re-work in service of our future selves and our VALUESSSSSS
Week 5- Shifting views of ABA
-ABA is changing and for many of us it leaves a weird feeling and some uncertainty on how we feel. So lets take a peek at it an build more confidence in our ABA moving forward!
