Anthony M. Graziano

Anthony M. Graziano is Professor Emeritus, Psychology, at the State University of New York, Buffalo. He was Co-Director of the Research Center for Children and Youth and served as the Director of the Clinical Area. Graziano received the B.A. degree from Columbia College in 1954 and the Ph.D. degree in 1961 from Purdue University. Following a clinical internship he completed a postdoctoral fellowship in child-clinical psychology at the Devereux Foundation in Pennsylvania. From 1961 to 1968 he developed and operated one of the first behavioral treatment programs in the country for children with autism. In that program he was, arguably, the first to employ relaxation and systematic desensitization techniques to help teach self-control skills to children with autism. He also served briefly as the Acting Director of the Kennedy Center for children with developmental disabilities. Dr. Graziano has been at the State University of New York (SUNY) at Buffalo since 1969. His research and writing has focused primarily on children, youth, and families, and has included: child psychopathology; developmental disabilities; children’s fears and phobias; behavior modification; parent training; community psychology; child abuse and neglect; and family therapy. His most recent research was on the use of corporal punishment in child rearing, and he has been a long-time opponent of corporal punishment. He is editor, co-author, or author of fifteen books, including four on the treatment of childhood disorders and one on developmental disabilities, over forty journal articles and many newspaper contributions. Dr. Graziano has been a member of the Board of Directors of the Eastern Psychological Association, People, Inc., a Western New York agency serving persons with developmental disabilities.
