      2019 ISITDBT Conference

      November 21, 2019 *Note: If you are also attending ABCT, you must register and purchase ABCT registration separately. In an effort to be more environmentally friendly (and to increase convenience to those that use e-readers), the ISITDBT Board has decided to make our conference program available to attendees as a PDF for 2019. That said, we are aware that some people will prefer a bound paper copy. As such, we are giving you the option of purchasing a printed program if you register by November 1st. Everyone that does not choose a printed program or registers after November 1st will receive access to the PDF.  7:30 – 8:30 Registration & Continental Breakfast - in International Ballroom8:30 – 8:40 Mindfulness (Kelly Koerner, Ph.D.)   International Ballroom8:50 – 8:55 Orientation (Katie Dixon-Gordon, Ph.D. and Esme Shaller, Ph.D.)  8:55 – 9:40 Research Spotlight: Stress, Emotion Dysregulation, and Addictive Behaviors (Rajita Sinha, Ph.D.) International Ballroom 9:45 – 12:15 Research Lightning Round (for all conference attendees) Field Update on Maternal BPD: DBT for Mothers: Maureen Zalewski, Ph.D.1 & Stephanie Stepp, Ph.D.2 (1University of Oregon, 2University of Pittsburgh) Prevalence, Correlates, and Treatment of BPD Symptoms Among Adolescents in a Nationally-representative Sample: Andrea L.
