We are excited to announce the first in a four-part CE event, presented by local DBT expert and THIRA’s Clinical Director, Dr. Kathryn Korslund!
Join us on Saturday, September 28th, at Overlake Golf & Country Club, as THIRA Health hosts the first of a four-part CE series focusing on Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) presented by world-renowned DBT expert, Dr. Kathryn Korslund. DBT is a comprehensive, cognitive-behavioral treatment for individuals with multiple, complex, and difficult to treat disorders. Developed for acutely and chronically suicidal individuals with emotional dysregulation, interpersonal chaos, impulsiveness, confusion about the self (identity) and cognitive rigidity, DBT has been found to be effective for a wide range of clinical problems such as depression, anxiety, eating disorders and substance use problems.
