PRESENTED BY DR. JAMES J. MAZZA & DR. ELIZABETH T. DEXTER-MAZZA

Feb 6 - 8, 2019 | 8 am - 4 pm | Social of Social Work, University of Washington, Room 305A


DBT – Steps A | Dialectical Behavior Training Feb 6-8

Student is leading cause of death for 10-14 year olds and the second leading cause of death for teens. With suicide rates continuing to increase due to the unique challenges that youth living in these times face, students need skills to help them regulate their emotions and to make healthy decisions. This training for school staff will teach an evidence based curriculum that can be used in the classroom to help all students develop DBT skills.

About the Curriculum

This curriculum is based on the skills from Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), which has been shown to be effective with high-risk adults and adolescents engaging in suicidal and non-suicidal self-injury behavior.

Target Population

Designed with a middle and high school student in mind. Over this three day training, school staff will learn how to implement DBT curriculum in their school communities.

DBT - STEPS-A goals include:

  • Learning coping strategies to deal with problems, especially under emotional distress

  • Developing better decision-making skills

  • Practicing awareness and emotion regulation skills
