At Center for Behavioral Sciences, we’re proud to be on the cutting edge of behavior analysis, as scientific contributors as well as practitioners. So we’re excited to announce that our Clinical Director, Shaji Haq, Ph.D., BCBA-D’s most recent peer-reviewed publication is available now in Behavior Analysis in Practice, a transnational scientific journal.(more…)
Dr. Joyce C. Tu, founder and director of Center for Behavioral Sciences and our related company, ABA Unlimited, traveled to China again last week to present four days of behavior analysis workshops in two cities: Haikou and Guangdong, the most populous cities in southern China’s Hainan and Guangdong provinces. Filled to capacity, there were about 500 attendees—primarily educators and physicians. This is a repeat performance for Dr. Tu, who has presented a series of six applied behavior analysis (“ABA”) workshops in China in three consecutive years, reportedly earning unanimous praise from frontline teachers, industry experts and institutional leaders.
CBS is proud to announce that as of November, 2018, we are partnering with our related company ABA Unlimited (or “ABAU”), as part of our commitment to behavior analysis education. Founded by CBS’ Director, Dr. Joyce C. Tu, ABAU is a Type 2 Authorized Continuing Education (“ACE”) provider through the Behavior Analyst Certification Board. ABAU offers live and online professional educational seminars in behavioral health and applied behavior analysis. CBS supports that mission by lending talented speakers and hosting ABAU’s live seminars in CBS’ Southern California offices.
This week, Dr. Joyce C. Tu, Ed.D., BCBA-D, Director of Center for Behavioral Sciences returned as an invited lecturer at Pepperdine University’s Irvine Graduate Campus. In this, our third lecture for the university, Dr. Tu reviewed applied behavior analysis best practices in clinical settings for a group of future marriage and family therapists. The students were engaged, raised many great questions and we had an insightful dialogue. We love sharing the science of ABA with future practitioners, who will undoubtedly change lives!
On Saturday, September 29th, we celebrated Center for Behavioral Sciences’ 14th anniversary and the grand opening of our new 4,100 sq. foot Irvine office, with a gathering of clients and staff! Our new main office is just across the street from CBS’ Intensive Treatment Center. It features five large treatment rooms (including a dedicated space for social skills groups for autism) and conference facilities for workshops, as well as for parent and staff training.
We’re excited to announce our newest service for CBS clients: Social Skills Groups for Autism! Our group sessions are happening now, in our Main Irvine Office! Mastering social skills can profoundly improve life for those with social deficits—particularly in the ability to make and maintain friendships, and to participate in school and the workforce.
This Month Marks CBS’ 14th Anniversary!
