» MAKE A GIFT  Please consider making a contribution in honor of Dr. Linehan’s legacy and impact today.

After more than four decades of pioneering research and developing dialectical behavior therapy to “help individuals build lives worth living,” Dr. Marsha Linehan retired in Spring of 2019. In recognition and honor of her dedication, service, and unparalleled impact within the global community and the field of psychology, the UW Department of Psychology launched a philanthropic campaign to create the Dr. Marsha Linehan Endowed Chair in Psychology. This will be the first endowed chair in the department and a befitting way to celebrate Dr. Linehan’s contributions to the field of psychology and to the many lives touched by her work.
