DMHAS sponsored workshop: An Overview of Dialectic Behavior Therapy (DBT)–Cancelled
Dialectic Behavior Therapy (DBT) is an evidenced based therapy for women and men with recurrent self-harming thoughts and behaviors, and dysregulated emotions. While originally intended for people who carry diagnoses of Borderline Personality Disorder, DBT’s core components‒which include Mindfulness, Cognitive-Behavioral techniques, skills training in interpersonal effectiveness, distress tolerance/crisis management and emotion regulation‒provide useful strategies for clients with a board range of diagnoses.
In this day-long interactive training attendees will learn the basics of DBT, including the biosocial theory of Borderline Personality Disorder and an overview of the key components of DBT. Throughout the training attendees will be involved in skills-training exercises that teach Mindfulness, Distress Tolerance, Interpersonal Effectiveness and Emotion Regulation. There will also be an opportunity to prioritize problem behaviors and construct behavioral chain analyses.
