Candidate Information for President Elect

Brad Bloomfield, Ph.D., BCBA-D

Biography

I am a Doctoral Board Certified Behaviour Analyst (BCBA-D) and lecturer in Applied Behaviour Analysis at Monash University. I have been working in the field of applied behaviour analysis as a behaviour specialist, school psychologist, researcher, and lecturer for 15 years. My clinical and research interests fall under training and skill development for parents, teachers, and caretakers in the treatment of interfering behaviour. Additional
interests relate to teleconsultation and the use of novel technologies in intervention and consultation services. Prior to joining Monash University, I was an assistant professor of
school psychology at the University of Alabama. I completed my PhD at the University of Utah specialising in teleconsultation and disruptive behaviour. During my training, I completed an internship at the Marcus Autism Centre in the assessment and treatment of paediatric feeding disorders and severe problem behaviour. Prior to this, I completed my master’s degree in school psychology at the University of Utah with a specialisation in applied behaviour analysis. My publication record includes four book chapters and 20 peer-reviewed journal articles. I am an editorial board member for three journals, and have served as a guest editor for a special-topic journal on advances in consultation.

Candidate Statement

I am eager to support the ABA Australia Board of Directors and the growing field in Australia as president-elect. I am passionate about the education of future behaviour analysts and supporting the expanded recognition of our field across Australia. My background in direct service, research, and training offers a unique perspective in the field of behaviour analysis. I have been involved with various non-profits, research institutions, hospitals, schools, and clinics with regard to the provision of behaviour analytic services. As such, I bring a varied perspective of different facets of the field where behaviour analysts practice today. I also am proficient at collaborating with others across
the world, both within and across disciplines. My research and teaching uses technology to work with others which is critical in today’s work environment. I am thus prepared to support communication and collaboration with colleagues across Australia. As a lecturer in applied behaviour analysis, I care greatly about how our field will grow, and ensuring high-quality trainees will enter the field with the knowledge and skills to be successful. I can add a trainer’s perspective and offer ways in which the board may continue to support the newest members of our profession.
