50th-logoIn May 2011, the Institutes for Behavior Resources celebrated its 50th Anniversary and honored our founder, Dr. Joseph V. Brady.  The diverse programs of IBR are inextricably linked to Dr. Brady, who pioneered and advanced multiple fields within the behavioral sciences that are commonplace today.  Originally founded in a post-WW II prefabricated trailer on the College Park campus of the University of Maryland, Dr. Brady created IBR to be a living laboratory that provides services and conducts innovative research aimed at extending the benefits of behavioral science to a wide variety of human and social challenges.  While IBR is well known in the Baltimore community and nationally for its innovative and effective substance abuse programs, others know IBR as a unique center for experimentation and development of human performance, behavioral analysis, and safety initiatives as well as home base for the Institutes’ accomplished and dynamic staff.
