    Dr. Miller has been invited to give the Keynote Address title “Adapting DBT for Schools” to the Newton-Wellsley Hospital School Summit on October 21, 2016. 

    The stresses of the 21st century have taken their toll on our youth. Greater numbers of school-aged children are exhibiting difficulties regulating their emotions and behaviors. As a result, school personnel have sought help on how to better intervene. Dr. Alec Miller will describe several of his adaptations of DBT in schools that have become widely used nationally. The ultimate goal of these approaches is to maintain students in their home district abd help them learn a variety of social-emotional skills that will help them function better socially, emotionally, and behaviorally. Preliminary data from several schools have promising results.
