About the Course:
Regulating emotions, refraining from impulsive maladaptive behavior, and communicating effectively are considered primary treatment needs among jail inmates. Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT; Linehan, 1993a) skills address these deficits and have been implemented in long- term correctional settings, but have yet to be adapted for general population inmates in short-term jail settings. This study assessed the feasibility and acceptability of a DBT skills group in a jail setting, as well as its utility in improving coping skills and emotional/behavioral dysregulation.
This course is based on the article, Pilot Study of a Brief Dialectical Behavior Therapy Skills Group for Jail Inmates created by Kelly E. Moore et al. in 2019.
