ServiceNet’s DBT Program Featured at National Conference
In October, 2016, ServiceNet’s Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) program was featured in a poster presentation at the 50th annual convention of the Association for Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies (ABCT). Presenters were Dr. Leonard A. Doerfler, Professor and Director of the Counseling Psychology Program at Assumption College in Worcester, Massachusetts; Anna Remen, Director of DBT Services for ServiceNet; and Dr. Adam Volungis, Assistant Professor of Psychology at Assumption College.
Dr. Doerfler collaborated with Volungis, Remen, and Jennifer Geerstma, Director of Research for ServiceNet, to identify pertinent characteristics of clients enrolled in DBT. ServiceNet clinicians have been providing DBT interventions for more than 20 years, making the agency a unique community-based model for study outside the university research setting.
In addition to his academic appointment at Assumption College, Dr. Doerfler serves as Adjunct Professor of Psychiatry for the University of Massachusetts Medical School. He is a Diplomat and Fellow with the Academy of Cognitive Therapy; a Certified Trainer/Consultant with the Academy of Cognitive Therapy; and a Fellow of the Association for Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies.
