Robin McCann, PhD, is a consultant at Behavioral Tech, where she educates health professionals on Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) throughout the United States and worldwide. She previously worked as Director of Psychology at the Institute for Forensic Psychiatry, Colorado Mental Health Institute.

Compared to standard outpatient DBT, Dr McCann recognizes the need for DBT to be applied differently to criminals who have multiple diagnoses and violent histories. Dr McCann’s expertise in DBT in criminal justice and forensic hospital settings paved the way for DBT forensic inpatient treatment across the United States. She was named as a noteworthy Clinical Psychologist by Marquis Who’s Who. Dr McCann is widely published in journals such as Cognitive and Behavioral Practice and the Behavior Therapist. Her most recent publication, entitled Comprehensive DBT Forensic and Correctional Programs, can be accessed in the book Dialectical Behavior Therapy in Clinical Practice (2021).
