Communicating with Suicidal Adolescents: DBT Skills Groups Training for Arts Therapists

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This daylong Master Class will cover core concepts of Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) and train participants in providing psychoeducation services to suicidal adolescents and their families. The teaching team will work from an experiential and collaborative framework that emphasizes the unique needs of adolescent learners and the value of expressive therapies for this population. Participants will learn working definitions of DBT concepts in addition to adolescent and adult learning theories. They will also have the opportunity to work on their confidence, practicing the skills necessary to train others. Participation is open to all mental health professionals, though particular emphasis will be placed on DBT skills training for expressive arts therapists. Prior experience with DBT is a plus, but not a prerequisite. The only requirement for participation is that you remember what it was like to be an adolescent!
