Clinicians here at Glenholme continue their professional development to improve their skills and acquire new knowledge of effective evidenced based practices. More recently including training in DBT and Trauma Informed Care.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is widely has been used in Glenholme’s Therapeutic treatment program where a supportive environment and safe setting allows the clinical work to determine the types of issues, or triggers, that contribute to adverse behavioral reactions in young people with learning and social challenges.

Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) is newly introduced to the clinicians as a specific form of cognitive behavioral therapy that seeks to build upon the practices of CBT. When a need is identified for this therapy the work addresses youth who are prone to react in a more intense and out of the ordinary manner in certain emotional circumstances, typically with family, friends and early adolescent romantic relations. Clinicians will participate in the training developed by well-known Dr.Marsha Linehan, devoted to ensuring programs who offer DBT meet rigorous standards and demonstrate adherence to this evidence based model.
