For our first Family Connections Continuing Education Program of 2014, we are honored to host a very special guest speaker and researcher:
Dr. Nori Lim, PhD from Emory University School of Medicine’s Adolescent DBT Program
Dr. Lim is a licensed clinical psychologist working with children, adolescents and adults in the Child and Adolescent Mood Program (CAMP) and directs the Anxiety Program at CAMP.
In 2008, CAMP launched a DBT program to meet the needs of teens struggling with persistent emotion dysregulation, self-injury and suicidal ideation. A parallel parent DBT skills group for parents of the adolescents was added in 2010 to improve parents’ interactions with their teens.
Dr. Lim will discuss research and findings to-date of Emory University’s Adolescent DBT program, focusing specifically on:
1) The elements of the adolescent DBT program
2) Treatment outcomes on DBT for adolescents
3) The role of care-giver involvement in the treatment of adolescents with emotional dysregulation
A brief biography of Dr. Lim follows.
