- Author BiographyAbout the editors DAVID M. STOFF, PhD, is Chief of the Per--petrators of Violence Research Program, Violence and Traumatic Stress Branch, Division of Epidemiology and Services Research, at the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH). After receiving his doctorate in psychology from Yeshiva University in 1972, Dr. Stoff became a Special Research Fellow of the NIMH, which allowed him to complete his postdoctoral training in psychopharmacology at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine. He later became an assistant professor in the Department of Psychiatry of the University of Chicago and an associate professor in the Department of Psychiatry of the Medical College of Pennsylvania. He was awarded a research grant and a Research Scientist Development Award from the NIMH to study the role of serotonin in childhood aggression and conduct disorder. JAMES BREILING, PhD, received his doctorate from the University of Iowa in 1970. His interest in behavior modification led him to work on NIMH--funded research interventions with high--risk young adolescents at the Institute for Behavior Research, and then in 1975, to join the Institute's funding program for research on aggressive children, delinquents, and the violent mentally ill, where his interests expanded to include the emerging areas of sex offending and spouse assault. His contributions to the development of therapeutic foster care were recognized in 1993 by the first significant achievement award of the Foster Family--Based Treatment Association, and his contributions to the development of the field of sex offender assessment and treatment were recognized by the Association for Treatment of Sexual Abuse with their 1996 Significant Achievement Award. JACK D. MASER, PhD, received his doctorate in psychology from Temple University in 1969. He taught and conducted research at Tulane University until 1975, at which time he moved to the NIMH. For much of his career at the NIMH, Dr. Maser has published on anxiety and personality disorders, including antisocial personality disorder and mood disorders. He is the recipient of many honors and awards, including the 1995 Distinguished Friend of Behavior Award of the Association for the Advancement of Behavior Therapy, the ADAMHA Administrator's Award for Meritorious Achievement (for 1979 and 1989), and the 1987 NIMH Award for Significant Achievement.
