  • CBC in the Media

    In today's Wall Street Journal, Dr Alec Miller discusses the usefulness of Dialectical Behavior Therapy in schools to address teenagers who are engaging in self injury, such a cutting. As schools are seeing a rise in this behavior, many school districts are implementing DBT programs to help students learn skills to manage their emotions. DBT practices have been shown to greatly reduce the frequency of self injury in teens. Dr. Miller, along with his team, were the original trainers/consultants for the program at Ardsley High School for over 8 years, and have since provided this important training and on ongoing consulting for the DBT services for 25 schools in the tri-state area.
