In Memoriam: Seth Axelrod, MD 1970-2022
Dr. Axelrod was interested in training clinicians in personality disorders and dialectical behavior therapy (DBT). He was particularly interested in helping therapists observe personal limits to improve treatment alliance, therapy effectiveness, and therapist satisfaction, and to reduce therapist burnout. In addition to his work at Yale, he was a trainer/consultant with Behavioral Tech, LLC, an organization developed by Dr. Marsha Linehan to disseminate DBT and other empirically supported therapies. Each spring he co-chaired a conference on Borderline Personality Disorder in partnership with the National Education Alliance for BPD and co-provided by the Yale School of Medicine, Yale New Haven Psychiatric Hospital, and the Yale Stress Center.
