  6. Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) for the Queer Community

    November 17, 2023 - 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM ET

    This course will focus on the usage of Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) with the Queer community in addressing mental health concerns. The Queer community experiences a large amount of discrimination, both on a micro and macro lens that leads to ongoing stressors. These stressors and environmental factors lead to a higher prevalence rate of mental illness within the Queer community. DBT, an evidence-based psychotherapy, has been shown to be beneficial for overall mental health, addressing self-injurious behaviors, emotional challenges, Major Depressive Disorder, Borderline Personality Disorder, and Generalized Anxiety Disorder. This course will address how to apply and use DBT with clients from the LGBTQIA2S+ community in an affirming and validating way.

    This course will cover Minority Stress Theory, and Biosocial Theory as well as review and introduce skills from the 4 core modules of DBT, mindfulness, distress tolerance, emotional regulation and effective communication.

    Registration for this course is closed. Visit the CE Course Catalog for more offerings.

    November 17, 2023 - 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM ET

    Join us to explore how cultural traditions, values, and practices can play a pivotal role in coping with and overcoming mental health barriers. We will dive deep into the profound connection between culture and mental health, exploring how cultural traditions, values, and practices can empower individuals to overcome mental health challenges.

    This is a time for conversation – to share feelings, raise concerns, and talk together as a school community. To aid the conversation, space will be limited. (We know it's coming up soon, so if you miss it, don't fear! If there is a lot of interest in this topic, we can hold another session soon.)

    About the format. With these smaller Community Conversations, our hope is to explore restorative dialogue and build community, creating a space where we are all teachers and learners. We will draw heavily on practices from intergroup dialogue and restorative justice.
