Dr. Terri Bright, BCBA-D

I have a Ph.D.in Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) with an animal specialty, and I am a BCBA-D (Board-Certified Behavior Analyst, Doctoral Level); my Masterís degree is also in Behavior Analysis; both degrees were earned at Simmons College. My undergraduate degree is from Lesley University, where my major was Intercultural Communication. I like to think my degrees give me a special ability to communicate the science of behavior analysis to humans.

I am the Director of Behavior Services at the MSPCA/Angell Animal Medical Center in Boston, MA, where I teach dog-training classes, supervise a very successful training program for pet dogs, provide staff enrichment, train Shelter dogs and their new owners, and help to assess surrendered dogs for the best placement. I also am an adjunct professor in Behavior Analysis at Simmons College and Northeastern University, and a Faculty Fellow at the Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine.

My academic interests have focused on functional assessment and analysis of dog behavior, stimulus equivalence in dogs, using prompt delays to transfer stimulus control, and curricular design.

Currently, because of my teaching schedule, I am only seeing private clients at MSPCA/Angell. I am very experienced with all manner of canine and feline behavioral issues, and am happy to work closely with your family and your vet in helping your pet to become a better-behaved family member.
