This month, we are excited to have Patty Gieselman, Director of Choices Counseling & Skills Center - and SGV-CAMFT chapter member - speak about Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT).
Choices describes DBT as "A type of therapy that focuses on skills acquisition, as well as individual therapy . . . DBT treats emotion regulation and focuses on developing or strengthening skills to improve emotional, behavioral and cognitive stability."
Located in the Playhouse District of Pasadena, the charming Mexican restaurant El Portal, will provide a three option menu or buffet, including beverage and gratuity, for $20. Register today! We look forward to seeing you there.

About the Lunch & Learn Program
The Lunch and Learn Speaker Series was created in 2017 in response to feedback from members who participated in our membership opinion survey. Every other month, we gather at the El Portal restaurant in Pasadena's Playhouse District. Each meeting features a 20-25 minute program covering various topics relevant to our profession. During this luncheon, members have the opportunity to socialize and network, promote their businesses and, of course, enjoy a delicious meal.
