Dana Chidekel, PhD

​A psychological corporation
Providing professionals and parents a clear and practical understanding of the relationship between brain development and behavior in everyday life.

Deborah Budding, PhD, Jayme Jones, PhD and Dana Chidekel, PhD have created Theory in Practice Inc., under the auspices of which we serve as providers of continuing educating for Phd and PsyD psychologists, LCSW's, MFT's, and Educational Therapists (thus far). Though CEU's will be available for professionals who attend, we aim to teach courses to make information accessible for everyone (e.g. plain English, no unexplained acronyms, lots of real-life stories and humorous videos to illustrate ideas).
