Auteur

Dr. James J. Asher is emeritus professor of psychology and former associate dean at San José State University, where he was honored with the Outstanding Professor Award. He has degrees in psychology from the University of New Mexico and the University of Houston with postdoctoral training at the University of Washington (Linguistics), Stanford University (Research in Educational Psychology), and the Defense Language Institute West Coast (Arabic). His research into language acquisition has been funded by grants from the Office of Education, the Office of Naval Research, the Department of Defense, and the State of California.
He has written more than a hundred articles for such journals as Child Development, The Journal of Humanistic Psychology, Psychological Reports, The Journal of Special Education, The Modern Language Journal, The International Review of Applied Linguistics, The Annals of the New York Academy of Sciences, and Psychology Today.
Dr. Asher has been invited to demonstrate his stress-free "Total Physical Response" (known world-wide as TPR) approach at several hundred elementary, high schools and universities, including the University of California, Stanford University, the University of Texas, New York University, the University of Hawaii, the University of Alaska, and Cambridge University in England. His classic video demonstrations of TPR with children and adults continue to guide language teachers around the world.
