Jude Bijou is a licensed marriage and family therapist (MFT), an educator in Santa Barbara, CA, and multi-award winning author of Attitude Reconstruction: A Blueprint for Building a Better Life (Riviera Press, 2011).

As the daughter of a famous pioneer in the field of behavioral child psychology and applied behavior analysis, Jude's upbringing sounds like it would be pretty cool. There was just one problem: she was miserable.

Earning a BA in psychology from Reed College and a master's in psychology from Carleton University, she became a marriage and family therapist.  Success was attained, yet something was still missing. Looking eastward, she immersed herself in the world of meditation and Vedic philosophy. The result: an integrated, truly holistic approach to therapy and for living a fulfilling life.

In 1982, Jude launched a private psychotherapy practice and started working with individuals, couples, and groups. She also began teaching communication courses through Santa Barbara City College Adult Education. Jude also became a sought-after workshop and seminar leader, teaching Attitude Reconstruction to others.

The culmination of Jude's groundbreaking work can now be found in Attitude Reconstruction: A Blueprint for Building a Better Life. These simple and effective principles have impacted countless clients, seminar participants and students. And Jude promises this: if we learn to use the tools we're intrinsically born with constructively, we can truly create a life full of joy, love, and peace.
