Dr. Benjamin Evare earned his Ph.D. in clinical psychology from Palo Alto University. He is particularly interested in integrating mindfulness and compassion practices with behavioral and cognitive treatments for mood disorders, substance use disorders, and difficulties with emotion regulation. He has conducted clinical research in a number of areas, including trauma, depression, anxiety, attachment, and treatment outcomes associated with narrative therapy, cognitive behavior therapy, and compassion focused therapy. He is currently working as a Psychological Assistant (PSB 94022876) practicing under the supervision of Dr. Chris Harrison (PSY 23743) where he sees individual clients and leads several DBT skills classes.


Dialectical Behavior Therapy was originally developed as a treatment for Borderline Personality Disorder. Since its inception, DBT has developed an evidence base for other disorders where deficits in emotional regulation are a core feature. Examples of these disorders include substance use disorders, binge eating disorder/bulimia, treatment resistant depression and non-suicidal self-injury. When it is delivered in an adherent from, it consists of four treatment modalities, which are individual therapy, skills class, phone coaching, and treatment team consultation. Treatment is a skills-based approach aimed at increasing effectiveness in four domains: Mindfulness, Distress Tolerance, Emotion Regulation, and Interpersonal Effectiveness. Examples of the skills subsumed in each area will be discussed..


At the conclusion, participants will be able to:

  1. Name and describe the four modules of DBT
  2. Name the four modalities of standard DBT treatment
  3. Name at least two disorders for which DBT has an evidence base
