What issue or circumstances initially made you look for an EBP to better serve your student population?
Four years ago, Latham implemented Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) Mindfulness into their community. It began as an initiative to introduce and establish coping techniques to successfully start the school day. We found that the students had difficulty transitioning from their residence to breakfast, and then from breakfast to school. It appeared to cause increased stress and anxiety amongst the students, and we wanted to find a calming technique to prepare them for their structured day.
