Event Details

This introductory session will be an overview of Dialectical Behavioral Therapy.  What is it?  How is it used? What’s the research say?  

One practitioner shares her experience with DBT in the classroom, in one-on-one sessions with students, with small groups, and in her personal life.  Participants will leave the session with a working knowledge of DBT concepts and how these concepts might benefit students (and adults) in and out of the 7 – 12th grade classroom. Bring your questions.

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

The first 50 people to register will be guaranteed a spot and will receive an email from the Scanlan Center for School Mental Health confirming their registration. We do plan to have a waitlist as well and will notify people if they are on the waitlist.
