Vibh Forsythe Cox, PhDSeattle, WA (United States)

Vibh Forsythe Cox, PhD, is a Training and Development specialist for Behavioral Tech, LLC (BTECH). She is part of the team that creates content for BTECH’s training offerings. Dr. Cox is also a Trainer and consultant for Behavioral Tech. In that role, she provides consultation for DBT teams internationally, specializing in newly forming DBT teams. She has experience providing DBT in a variety of settings, including university-based research, inpatient hospitals, outpatient clinics, and forensic settings. Dr. Cox is a licensed Psychologist in Washington State and is certified by the DBT – Linehan Board of Certification. Dr. Cox is invested in DBT because she sees it as a way to use compassionate, evidence-based care to give hope and solutions to people whose suffering is leading them to contemplate suicide or preventing them from reaching goals that are meaningful for them. Even when people know what kind of treatment could help them move toward their important goals, they are not always able to access that treatment. Dr. Cox is committed to increasing equitable access to treatment. In addition to using this treatment directly with clients, she joined the Behavioral Tech team in order to help train more providers to effectively deliver this life changing treatment. Dr. Cox also works to train treatment providers in her role as a Clinical Associate Professor at the University of Washington. She is the Director of the Marsha M. Linehan DBT Clinic, a training clinic where she supervises graduate student trainees as they learn the foundations of DBT. Also in service of her goal to increase equity in treatment, Dr. Cox has provided team consultation related to Anti-Racism in DBT.
