Spaces are still available for the DeKalb Community Service Board’s training for professionals in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy taking place April through August.

The class will be led by Dr. Michael Maslar, a licensed clinical psychologist and the director of Mindfulness and Behavior Therapies for the Family Institute at Northwestern University.

DBT is the most successful outpatient treatment model for chronically suicidal, self-injuring individuals or individuals with Axis II traits, the DeKalb CSB says.

The training is a 10-day series held one Friday and Saturday per month in Bohan Auditorium in the Richardson Building, 445 Winn Way in Decatur.

Participants must have a master’s degree or higher. Graduate students must be in the second year of their master’s degree.

The DeKalb Community Service Board is a public, nonprofit treatment provider of community-based behavioral health and developmental disability services.
