Program Description:

Attend this seminar and you will discover how powerful and proven Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is for treating challenging child and adolescent disorders. Working with emotionally-dysregulated children in your practice can be overwhelming and exhausting. You probably feel the pull of being the "savior" for dysregulated children and their worried parents. Learn how to implement the DBT skills you need to be more effective in treatment, avoid burnout and achieve positive outcomes.

About Dr. Webb

Dr. Eboni Webb earned her doctorate of clinical psychology in 2008 from the Minnesota School of Professional Psychology (now Argosy University/Twin Cities).  She has practiced in numerous community settings including clinics that treated underserved communities of color, clients with developmental disabilities, and clients suffering from severe and persistent mental illness.  She worked at the largest mental health clinic at the time in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area that specialized in treating clients diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) with Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT).  She has practiced DBT for over seven years in community mental health centers  and developed two special DBT-oriented treatment programs for clients with developmental disabilities and borderline-intellectual functioning.   She continues to serve as an advisor to the Dialectical Behavior Therapy National Certification and Accreditation Association (DBTNCAA).

Dr. Webb currently resides in Nashville, TN where she has been serving clients for three years in her private practice, Kairos.  She continues to specialize in individual and group DBT as well as cognitive-behavior strategies that address a myriad of clinical issues. She also offers special group therapies for adults and a dual-track of teen skills training that includes their parents.  She is currently working to adapt DBT for clients with severe and persistent mental illness (e.g. psychotic-based disorders).
