    We are excited to announce our newly launched program (CBT-SA), which is designed to benefit adults who experience anxiety or discomfort in social settings such as work, with friends/family, dating, when participating in hobbies or sports, or when performing in public.  CBT-SA will teach members a variety of powerful skills to overcome anxiety and increase effectiveness in social situations. CBT-SA combines individual and group sessions to help participants achieve quicker results and receive maximal benefit. By joining CBT-SA, participants will both acquire and practice skills in a safe setting and learn to apply these skills in real life social situations. Participants must be adults 18 and older. Please contact Dr. Michelle Greenberg, Director of Clinical Intake Services at 914-385-1150 ext 5 if you are interested in participating. Also, feel free to ask to your clinic providers to determine whether this group would be useful for you or your family member.

    We are excited to offer a group in our White Plains Office designed to help and support the siblings of adolescents who are currently enrolled or previously participated in DBT treatment. We acknowledge that living with and loving someone who has difficulty controlling their emotions can be difficult and we are happy to extend support to siblings who could benefit from understanding more about these difficulties and the skills we teach to address them. The Sibling Support Group is open to siblings (ages 12-18) of participants currently or previously enrolled in DBT Treatment. Please contact Dr. Michelle Greenberg, Director of Clinical Intake Services at 914-385-1150 ext 5 if you are interested in participating. Also, feel free to ask to your clinic providers to determine whether this group would be useful for you or your family member.

    Day/Time: Tuesdays 6-8:00 pm 

    Sessions/Start:  8 weekly sessions beginning February 2nd

    In an article written by Benedict Carey, John Kane, Chairman of the psychiatry department at Hofstra North Shore - LIJ School of Medicine studies the past treatments for Schizophrenia and how new studies find that this way of medication prescribing is not the best answer. "Nearly three quarters of people prescribed medications for the disorder stop taking them within a year and a half, studies find" (Carey, 2015).

    Dr. Lata McGinn's article in Psychosis, 2015 "Identical symptomatology but different diagnosis: Treatment implications of an OCD versus schizophrenia diagnosis" agrees stating, "...Individuals who receive the label of schizophrenia are unlikely to be offered psychosocial treatments despite the evidence for the efficacy of this approach" (Hunter et al, 2015).
