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.



As a Board Certified Behavior Analyst, my clinical experience focuses on quality assurance, 

compliance, clinical support, business development and growth. I also work closely with 

leadership and management divisions on compliance, training and delivery of sound, 

ethical and effective behavioral supports to achieve client goals.



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.
