The Youth and Family Institute (YFI) is dedicated to promoting the development and dissemination of Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) and other evidence-based practices (EBP) among families, communities, and mental health professionals. Here is a list of selected topics in which we have expertise and experience providing training and consultation.
Introduction to the structure, theoretical foundations, and intervention strategies of DBT, as well as the four sets of behavioral skills: mindfulness, distress tolerance, emotion regulation and interpersonal effectiveness.
Skillfully balancing acceptance and validation with effective limit setting and reinforcement to shape their child’s behavior, improve communication, and promote collaborative problem solving.
Training and consultation for school administrators, teachers, and mental health staff to implement DBT skills for teens as part of their SEL Curriculum.
Strategies and practices for staying open and fully aware in the present moment, with acceptance, non-attachment, and compassion.
Core competencies (e.g., ethics, active listening, validation, motivational interviewing) for non-clinical staff working folks with mental health issues.
Strategies for identifying barriers to equity and inclusion, developing ‘anti-ism’ culture (workplaces that are antiracist, antisexist, etc), responding to identity related aggressions, and challenging hegemonic structures and practices.
