NSU Research Spotlight: Severe Behavioral Disorders and Autism

F.-Charles-Mace-Ph.D-212x300

Charles Mace, Ph.D.

Researchers at NSU’s Center for Psychological Studies (CPS) and the Mailman Segal Center for Human Development, led by CPS professor F. Charles Mace, Ph.D., who is the Unicorn Children’s Foundation Endowed Chair, are conducting research to understand why successful treatment of severe behavior disorders sometimes results in treatment relapse and recurrence of severe behavioral problems in children with autism.  The aim of the research is to discover new ways to reduce or avoid treatment relapse and improve long-term outcomes for the treatment of severe behavior disorders.
