Friday Factoids: The Skills System



Julie F. Brown has modified DBT techniques for use with individuals with intellectual disabilities. The Skills System is comprised of skills and tools for effectively managing emotions, thoughts, and actions. Her guide for clinicians, The Skills System Instructor’s Guide: An Emotion Regulation Skills Curriculum for All Learning Abilities (2011) can be purchased through Amazon.


See her website for more information about this practical approach. Several psychologists in our department have been trained on this system and are finding it extremely useful in our work at the hospital.
