for Korean immigrants at the Zucker-Hillside Hospital in New York."
In 2001, Dr Cho started DBT individual sessions and skill group sessions for Korean immigrants at the Zucker-Hillside Hospital in New York. Many clients reported having Hwa-byung, a symptom that only appears in Korean culture. Dr. Cho successfully treated the symptom using DBT, which drew the media’s attention, including New York Times.
Back then, Dr. Cho translated each worksheet in Dr. Linehan’s DBT Skills Training Manual for Korean clients and conducted DBT skills training group sessions. 7 years later, he published DBT Skills Training Manual in Korea, which continuously give professionals and clients opportunities to more insights from DBT.
