The Temperament Model of Behavior            08/11/2014

 John T. Cocoris, Th.M., Psy.D.

As a result of 35 years of research with a diverse population, Dr. Cocoris has identified new insights into people's behavior using the temperament model. Since the mid 1970s John has personally tested and interviewed thousands of people in the business community and as a therapist. As a licensed therapist for a mental health hospital, John interviewed nearly one thousand people in emergency rooms and hospitals gaining insights into behavior. While at the mental health hospital, Dr. Cocoris worked with every group, including adults, children, those with multiple-personalities and those in intensive care. This extensive research has led to the publishing of two books, five manuals, a testing instrument and more. Dr. John Cocoris founded Profile Dynamics in 1984 to research, develop and promote the Temperament Model of Behavior. Dr. John Cocoris and Dr. Frank Garofalo now offer certification to Christian counselors in the use of the Temperament Model of Behavior and the DISC II Temperament Assessment.
