CHRISTEN RUSSELL, MS, BCBA
As the founder and Executive Director of Affecting Behavior
Change, LLC., I created ABC from my passion and commitment
to education, diversity, equity, inclusion, and justice, ethical
behavior and decision-making, behavior analysis, and continual
personal and professional growth. I take a lifelong learner approach to systematically fill
the gaps in areas of continuing education, professional development, and research.
I have established and assisted with the startup, and/or growth and development of four
agencies providing ABA services. I have consulted with health care agencies, providing
services to 100s of staff, including BCBAs, BCaBAs, RBTs, executive, administrative, clinical
and operations staff.
I am an adjunct faculty member at Endicott College. The courses I have taught include: Ethical
Considerations in ABA, Behavioral Assessments, Behavior Change Procedures, Translating Behavior
Analysis to the Organization, and Professionalism.
I am a guest lecturer at Rutgers University Graduate School of Social Work, presenting on
the principles and procedures of ABA. As an ACE coordinator, I have created over 40
continuing education events. I have provided consultation to teachers, parents, business
owners and staff.
I sit on a Peer Review Committee and am a member of the Association for Behavior Analysis
International, Association for Professional Behavior Analysts and the OBM Network. I am pursuing my
Doctorate degree in Applied Behavior Analysis at Endicott College. I have my Master of Science in
Psychology with a specialization in Applied Behavior Analysis. With a focus on supervision, staffing,
recruitment, training, strategic planning, and working in the field for over 22 years, I have
a broad spectrum of clinical expertise.
