Substance use and emotion regulation in youth

Live webinar July 20, 2021

The training will touch upon the unique role of trauma on both of those. It will include discussion on evidence-based interventions, such as DBT, trauma-informed care, in the role of substance-use treatment and how improving distress tolerance can result in substance-use change.
