For over two decades, Dr. Linehan oversaw the Treatment Development Clinic (TDC) which provided clinical services and trained clinicians (including graduate students and postdoctoral fellows) for the purpose of conducting research. After Dr. Linehan’s retirement (in 2019), the Department of Psychology reorganized the TDC into the Marsha M. Linehan DBT Clinic, a specialty clinic within the Psychological Services and Training Center. The MML DBT Clinic continues Dr. Linehan’s commitment to graduate education and to making treatment services more accessible to members of the Greater Seattle community. It trains graduate students to deliver DBT and other evidence-based treatments to individuals with high risk for suicide and self-harm, and those with problems of emotion dysregulation.
Dr. Linehan firmly believes that all people in need of efficacious treatments for mental health problems should be able to receive them. Generous donors who share her belief have created two gift funds to support her passion for training clinicians and serving individuals at high risk for suicide:
If you wish to support graduate students to provide compassionate and effective treatments to suicidal, multi-diagnostic clients, please give to the “Linehan Fellowship in Clinical Psychology”.
To help individuals get high quality clinical services and to empower them to build lives worth living, please give to “DBT Life Worth Living“.
