About the Organizer

The Depression and Anxiety Specialty Clinic of Chicago was founded in 2005 by Rodney J. Benson, Ph.D. after it became apparent that there was a significant shortage of quality Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) available in Chicago. Many people with treatable disorders, such as Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD), Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) Social Phobia and Major Depressive Disorder were suffering needlessly because they could not access quality care. It has been the mission of DASC to address this shortage by providing services to those suffering and also offering training opportunities to other professionals to increase the availability of CBT. DASC currently has over 20 clinical staff specializing in using and teaching CBT, DBT, and ACT. DASC Academy is a branch of DASC that is committed to providing professional training and education to clinicians interested in increasing their knowledge of evidence-based practices.
