Tom Dozier, BCBA Biography

Thomas H. Dozier is a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA). Tom has researched misophonia and worked to develop treatments since 2012, and he has shown that Misophonia includes an acquired physical reflex to the trigger sounds which causes extreme emotions of rage and disgust (a conditioned emotional response).    

 

He developed the Neural Repatterning Technique and the Misophonia Trigger Tamer app to deliver this treatment.  Tom is the director of the Misophonia Treatment Institute, which promotes misophonia research, treatment, and awareness.  He received a Master of Science in Behavior Analysis and the Family from California State University, Stanislaus.  

 

His primary career focus was parenting and parenting skills (see 3LParenting.comguaranteedpt.com, or LDSParentCoach.org, but Tom became interested in misophonia because he worked with parents of children with misophonia.  He also realized that his adult daughter and one grandchild had misophonia. 

 

Tom is the author of Understanding and Overcoming Misophonia, A Conditioned Aversive Reflex Disorder and had three published journal articles on misophonia in 2015.
