On June 14 or 15, join us for Applying Dialectical Behavior Therapy for Community Mental Health, a workshop presented by Dr. Andrew Bein.
This workshop is designed for mental health/behavioral health practitioners to enrich their understanding of dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) as well as help them gain proficiency in applying DBT-informed interventions.
A user-friendly, Wise Mind model will be presented that practitioners in various settings – community mental health, substance abuse, and youth work – have effectively used across a spectrum of client diagnoses. Particular attention will be paid to engaging reluctant clients and to having our DBT work be trauma-informed. Methods for incorporating these practices into our individual and group work will be addressed.
Ultimately, this lively, skill-based workshop will help us empower community clients to develop compassionate self-care skills, to mindfully address and work with reactive and distressing emotions, and to locate sources of resilience in challenging times.

Andrew Bein, Ph.D., LCSW, Emeritus Professor, Sacramento State University
For nearly 18 years, I have been incorporating, mindfulness-based practices and DBT in a variety of settings including community mental health, substance abuse, youth work and private practice. I am the Clinical Supervisor at Sunburst Projects and have worked with various community agencies to successfully implement the DBT model and lessons from DBT for Wellness and Recovery: Interventions and Activities for Diverse Client Needs (Wiley). We will work, laugh, and grapple together over the possibilities of applying DBT in our practice arenas.
