The passing of the baton …

ISITDBT is pleased to make formal the announcement that the Program Chair for the ISITDBT Conferences for 2014 and 2015 will be Lynn McFarr, Ph.D.

Dr. McFarr is the dictionary definition of Scientist Practitioner, so it makes perfect sense that she would chair our conference, aimed at Improvement and Teaching of Dialectical Behavior Therapy!

Please make sure that you come to Nashville to meet Dr. McFarr at ISITDBT 2013 to give her your best wishes. Tickets for ISITDBT 2013 are still available, even though 2013 registration is even stronger than last year.  Just make sure that you come to Music City ready to sing!

Once again, a big thank you to Dr. McFarr for taking on the responsibility of Chairing the 2014 and 2015 ISITDBT Program Committees.

See you all in November,

Countdown to ISITDBT 2013

You can watch the count down to ISITDBT 2013 at the ISITDBT Conference Page.

We are under one month to go!

If you have been waiting to register, please wait no longer. All morning workshop choices are still open at present, but please do not tempt fate. We will use the same online registration on site in Nashville, so make it easy on yourself and please register from the comfort of your home or office before you come on to Music City.

Please use the ABCT site to reserve your rooms at the Opryland Hotel for your attendance at ISITDBT and ABCT. This link will afford you the ABCT room rate.

See you soon,

ISITDBT 2013 Poster Announcements

We are excited to announce the research and program development posters that will be part of our ISITDBT 2013 Poster Session.  Although we never have enough room to accept all the posters that we would like to accept, we will be able to have nineteen posters this year. More than last year!

Please view the list of 2013 ISITDBT Posters so you will be ready for our poster session in Tennessee Ballrooms D & E.  The poster session will run from 5:15PM to 6:30PM on November 21, 2013 after Marsha Linehan’s annual State of DBT Address.  Bring some pocket change for the cash bar and bring your business cards for networking, while you soak in the data from the posters.

Please remember that Early Bird Rates for ISITDBT 2013 Registration will continue until the morning of October 10, 2013.  It will be an automatic switchover to the higher rates on that date, so get while the getting is cheaper (i.e., by Oct 9th)! The early bird rates help me to estimate the number of attendees, so that I can keep things organized with the hotel.  Your early registration saves your wallet and makes for a smoother ISITDBT day overall.  So please don’t delay!  

Enjoy reviewing the Posters!

Best Regards,
