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!  

Dr. Tu has over twenty years’ experience providing one-on-one services, training, workshops, and supervision for parents and professionals working with individuals diagnosed with autism and other developmental disabilities.  She is currently the Vice President of the B.F. Skinner Foundation; as well as an associate professor for the Florida Institute of Technology and an affiliate professor at the Chicago School of Professional Psychology—focusing primarily on the areas of experimental analysis of behavior and verbal behavior.

Pepperdine’s Graduate School of Education and Psychology offers rigorous academic programs that prepare students to serve as leaders in their communities, organizations, and businesses.
