Event Details

This session will be a quick review of the DBT concepts from Level 1 and a deeper dive into applying them in practice.

  • How does DBT fit into a trauma informed classroom?
  • Who benefits from DBT?
  • What might implementation look like?
  • Can I use DBT in my science (or math or English) class??
  • What do youth say about the skills they’ve learned?

Time will be given to workshop using DBT concepts in all areas of education. Examples of mindfulness practices that can be used in the classroom will be included throughout the session.

Note: This is not a DBT training, but an overview of the practice and an example of how it might be implemented.
