Title:  Advances in DBT with Adolescents and Families in Outpatient and School Settings

Audience Level:  Basic (casual familiarity with topic area e.g., treated one case)

Presenter(s) and Affiliation(s):  Alec L. Miller, PsyD, Professor of Clinical Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, Chief, Child and Adolescent Psychology, Montefiore Medical Center/Albert Einstein College of Medicine; Co-Founder, Cognitive & Behavioral Consultants, LLP, White Plains & Manhattan, NY.

Abstract:  DBT is the leading evidence-based treatment for suicidal adults diagnosed with BPD. Recently, treatment researchers have found empirical support for the adaptation and application of DBT to self-harming multi-problem adolescents and their families.  In addition, DBT is being applied to elementary, middle and high school students in a variety of school settings.  This presentation will highlight the recent empirical findings that support the application of DBT to self-harming adolescents and their families.  In addition, the presenter will describe the rationale and various formats of school-based DBT.  Special consideration is paid to the relevance of the biosocial theory within the school context.  Lastly, the presentation will introduce some skills that have been expanded upon to address some of problems that arise when treating adolescents and their family members.

At the conclusion of this program, participants will be able to:

  1. Describe the evidence base for DBT with self-harming adolescents.
  2. Describe the rationale, including the biosocial theory, for DBT in school settings.
  3. Identify DBT skills that target key aspects of adolescent-family conflicts.
