Objective: Learning techniques to assess suicide risk, early intervention treatment options, and managing a clinician’s own fear. There is a high probability that any clinician will encounter a self-harming or suicidal client over their professional career; the likelihood of a DBT® therapist treating a high acuity client is dramatically higher than their peers. It is crucial that DBT® therapists have an understanding of suicidal risk factors as well as a plan for assessing and treating.
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.
