Improving Emotion Regulation for Individuals with a Developmental Disability through SkillsSystem (2016)
Presenters: Diane Gould, LCSW, BCBA and Susan Kahan, MA, LCPC
SkillsSystem (Brown, Brown & Dibiasio, 2013) is a curriculum developed for individuals with an intellectual and developmental disability whose struggles with emotion regulation interfere with independence, relationships and well-being. SkillsSystem is based on Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) with a focus on emotion regulation skills that help move the individual toward clearly identified short and long term goals. This webinar offers an overview of the nine skill development areas and three system tools (“Clear Picture,” “On-Track Thinking,” and “On-Track Actions”) that are at the center of the curriculum. We will discuss the system’s application in both individual and group settings, as well as its utility in CILAs and day programs.
