Workshop Description

This “Beyond the Basics” advanced workshop is intended for clinicians with a basic understanding of DBT who want to develop more sophisticated and targeted interventions by:

  • Delving further into treatment planning from a DBT perspective and learning how to decide which DBT interventions will best suit a client’s needs
  • Exploring how to teach the DBT skills to clients in relation to Axis I diagnoses such as depression, anxiety disorders, and bipolar disorder
  • Discussing what to do when interventions don’t seem to be moving the client forward
  • Taking a closer look at the role of the DBT consultation team

In this workshop, Sheri will focus on how to use DBT strategies and skills to treat psychiatric illnesses other than borderline personality disorder, including bipolar disorder, depression, and anxiety, and issues such as anger, grief, and self-esteem. She will also discuss challenges encountered by new DBT therapists, ideas to help therapists deal with client “resistance”, and techniques to help clinicians manage escalating emotions during the session.

This experiential and collaborative training will help expand your knowledge of DBT strategies and skills through lecture, role-play, video analysis of clients, and practical exercises.
