Dr. Zapolski Featured in a Podcast

If journal articles are a bit boring for your taste, you can now hear Dr. Zapolski talk about her research in the latest podcast from the Journal of School Nursing. Dr. Zapolski was invited to talk to the Journal of School Nursing about her recent article, "Implementing a Brief DBT Skills Program in Schools to Reduce Health Risk Behaviors Among Early Adolescents." The study details the results of a Dialectical Behavior Therapy intervention modified for brief use in schools. Dialectical Behavior Therapy, or DBT, is a skills-based intervention that has been shown to improve emotion regulation and reduce risk-taking behavior among adolescents. However, it is usually implemented long-term. Dr. Zapolski's research examined whether DBT would be appropriate when modified to only 9 sessions delivered in a classroom setting.
