Learn about our new Behavior Supervisor Jose Davila who was born and raised in Los Angeles.
Where did you train or go to school?
I completed my doctorate at The Chicago School of Professional Psychology. I just need to complete the copy editing process, but I am pretty much done. I completed my dissertation under the supervision of Dr. Fernando Guerrero. The topic of my dissertation was Component Analysis of Staff Training Procedures to Conduct Trial-Based Functional Analysis. I have also worked and trained under the supervision of Dr. David Pyles. I have also been fortunate to gain experience from other clinicians, including Anthony Jenkins.
Why did you go into your field?
I like to help people. It is extremely reinforcing seeing progress through data! ABA provided an excellent opportunity to make a difference.
Any favorite leisure activities?
My leisure activities consist of watching Los Angeles Clipper games (huge fan), playing with my six year old son, and watching movies. For reading purposes, I enjoy reading Skinner books, and other text that relate to behavior analysis.
