Are you planning to implement the DBT in Schools Steps-A curriculum?

Join us for a 2-part learning series that will review the content of the curriculum, align to your SEL strategic planning, and provide tips and examples for successful implementation. We will be hosting a series of training sessions, based on the level of implementation readiness of your school or system.

DBT Steps-A curriculum is an emotional problem-solving curriculum based upon Dialectical Behavioral Therapy. It is designed for adolescents with the goal of teaching skills for emotion management, interpersonal communication and decision-making. The curriculum is an upstream focus to mental wellness, with a whole child approach.

Part 1: DBT Steps A Curriculum 101

This session will introduce participants to the DBT Steps A curriculum, including:

  • An introduction to Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)
  • An overview of the curriculum content and areas of focus
  • Exploration of the curriculum outcomes, curriculum

sequence and lesson examples

  • Examination of implementation in Tiers 1, 2 and 3.

This session is a good fit for individuals or teams that are in the exploration stage of readiness, desiring to know what this curriculum entails and still determining if this curriculum would be a good fit for their system.


Part 2: Launching Your Curriculum Implementation

The Part 2 session will focus on connecting your implementation to your desired student outcomes, building alignment of DBT Steps A curriculum to other initiatives, such as MLSS, and creating an action plan for your implementation goals.

This session is a good fit for individuals or teams in the implementation stage of readiness, that are preparing to use the DBT Steps A curriculum or are already using this tool.


COST: These sessions are FREE to participants. All session Zoom links will be emailed to registrants.
