What does a Behavioral Assistant Do?
Behavioral assistants work with their clients to develop treatment plans. They also provide support and guidance to help their clients reach their goals. In addition, they may also offer crisis intervention services.
Behavioral assistants must have a bachelor’s degree in psychology, social work, or a related field. Some states also require that they be licensed. Most behavioral assistants work in outpatient settings, such as mental health clinics, community mental health centers, and private practices.
