Children’s Friend would like to thank the Hoche-Scofield Foundation, Bank of America, N.A., Co-Trustee for the recent $5,000 grant for our Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) program. Our DBT program treats youth who are at risk of death from self-injury and suicide, moving them from crisis to stability, and creating lives worth living. Thank you, Hoche-Scofield Foundation, for partnering with us to keep these vulnerable youth safe!
Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) is a type of cognitive behavioral therapy for clients with history of depression, anxiety and self-harm. DBT is meant to strengthen skills of mindfulness, distress tolerance, emotional regulation and interpersonal effectiveness skills.
