About the speaker
Daniel J Moran, Ph.D., BCBA-D
I’d prefer my biography to reflect the most vital and meaningful things in my life, so I should prioritize writing about my family, friends, and love for heavy metal. Alas, this is a professional biography, so it is more appropriate to focus on the fact that I am the founder of Pickslyde Consulting, an organization aimed at using evidence-based applications to improve leadership, performance, safety, and wellness in the workplace. I am also the cofounder of BehavAble, a telehealth clinic helping children dealing with behavioral concerns. In addition, I am an associate professor for Touro University and cofounder of our Doctor of Psychology program in New York City.
I earned my Ph.D. in Clinical & School Psychology from Hofstra in 1998 under the supervision of Kurt Salzinger and Richard O’Brien, and I am past-president of the Association for Contextual Behavioral Science. The Association for Behavior Analysis International gave me the Outstanding Mentor Award in 2014. I have several publications applying Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and behavioral science to clinical issues, leadership, and behavioral health, and appeared on The Learning Channel, Animal Planet, and The Oprah Winfrey Network discussing anxiety disorders and hoarding. I am also a Recognized ACTrainer and Board Certified Behavior Analyst… and have I mentioned that I love my family, friends, and heavy metal?
