From Scepticism to Global Regard: The Journey and Legacy of Marsha Linehan’s Dialectical Behavior Therapy
Dialectical Behavior Therapy revolutionised the field of psychological therapy for severe and complex mental health problems both in terms of the integration of its components - Western psychology and Eastern practice – to deliver a comprehensive transdiagnostic treatment, and by bringing hope to a group of clients previously dismissed as untreatable.  This talk will focus on the unique aspects of the treatment that have contributed to its worldwide dissemination and implementation, showcasing Marsha Linehan’s pioneering work that has transformed the way clients with complex needs are treated.

Marsha Linehan and Suicide Prevention Clinical Research: Four Major Contributions
Marsha Linehan pioneered rigorous suicide prevention clinical research on four major fronts simultaneously.  First, as everyone knows, was the development of Dialectical Behavior Therapy, which has been found to reduce suicide attempts in multiple research studies across the world.  However, not everyone realizes the impact she has had in three other areas.  This talk will focus on her development of multiple widely used measures for suicide research, her clinical trials methodology for safely engaging high risk suicidal participants in clinical research, and her key role in mentoring the junior faculty who are now the principal investigators of many of the largest suicide prevention clinical trials.  Thus, Marsha Linehan’s contributions have been vital to bringing multiple innovative evidence-based treatments to suicidal individuals.

This free lecture is made possible by a generous endowment from Professor Allen L. Edwards. Registration requested.
