DBT: Skills, Concepts & Applications to Clinical Practice with Adults, Children & Teens

A Continuing Education Workshop for Mental Health Professionals

presented by
Reji Mathew, PhD, LCSW
Adjunct Assistant Professor, NYU School of Social Work
Senior Social Worker, NYU Counseling and Wellness, Student Health Center

This full-day workshop will provide a valuable learning opportunity for mental health professionals seeking to enhance their clinical practice, and augment their toolbox of therapy skills. Participants will gain valuable insights into the application of Dialectical Behavior Therapy to a broad range of clinical conditions in adults, children, and adolescents. The workshop will offer a practical skills approach for utilization of this evidence-based model in clinical settings across diagnostic categories and treatment populations. 

A basic framework for understanding DBT treatment of emotional regulation difficulties will be provided, to enhance understanding of the treatment model and inform practice. Participants will learn tangible solutions for helping clients improve their coping abilities, and will gain insights into how to apply these practical strategies, both within the context of a comprehensive treatment model, and independent of the model. 

The presentation will be enhanced by experiential sampling of DBT techniques, Question and Answer discussion, case examples and video recordings illustrating the use of DBT skills in the therapy context. 

Space is limited. Early registration is advised.
