team or other professionals within the DBT® framework.
Method: Dialectical Behavioral Therapy® (DBT®) is a cognitive-behavioral treatment modality developed by Marsha Linehan. DBT® applies a wide range of cognitive and behavioral approaches to the symptoms exhibited by the client, resulting in decreased problem behavior and increased healthy coping strategies. DBT® was originally created to treat chronically suicidal clients who were diagnosed with borderline personality disorder, it was the first psychotherapy found to be effective with this population. Since its inception, DBT® has been extensively studied and has been found to be an effective treatment option for numerous axis I disorders including depression, bipolar, ADHD, domestic violence, self-injury behavior, substance abuse and eating disorders.
Means: This course will employ the use of training videos, lecture, and role play training. There will be plenty of time for questions and the trainees are happy to tailor this training as participants see helpful.
This training is geared toward clinicians who are looking to run a DBT® Skills Class and/or teach clients the skills individually. Attendees will evaluate the logistics for implementing a skills class in their setting. Clinicians will learn the basic DBT® Skills and how to teach them to clients within a group setting. We also seek to present methods for managing a group of high risk clients to be able to run a successful skills class.
