Options Under the Lanterman-Petris-Short (LPS) Act

September 17, 2020

Presented by Linda P. Boyd, MN, Connie Draxler, MPA, & Elizabeth Bromley, MD, PhD

Learn the basics of Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), an evidence-based treatment that teaches clients how to become more mindful while simultaneously working on improving interpersonal relationships, tolerating distress, and regulating intense emotions. We’ll explore the evidence-base for DBT, treatment principles and assumptions, and the four skills modules. You’ll be introduced to practical applications of DBT through didactic presentation, discussion, video clips, and opportunities to practice using case examples.
