Event description

Description

What is DBT? Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), developed by Marsha Linehan Ph.D., at the University of Washington, is a compassionate and evidence-based model that has proven effective for clients struggling with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD). Although originally developed for individuals with BPD, research has shown DBT to be effective in reducing suicidal behaviour, psychiatric hospitalization, treatment dropout, substance abuse, anger, and interpersonal difficulties in individuals with or without a BPD diagnosis.

This seminar is ideal for clinicians interested in using DBT techniques to complement their existing competencies in psychotherapy. Through this seminar, clinicians will learn the principles of DBT as well as ways to incorporate these principles into their existing practice of psychotherapy. This seminar does not certify clinicians as DBT clinicians but allows them to conduct DBT informed psychotherapeutic practices to facilitate healing in their clients.

About the Facilitator:

Kafui Sawyer is a Registered Psychotherapist and a DBT trained clinician who, over the past seven years, has used DBT to treat emotional dysregulation, suicidal and self-destructive behaviours, addictions, eating disorders, Borderline Personality Disorder, depression, anxiety, and adolescent-family dilemmas. Through this seminar, participants will learn and discuss the five main skills used in DBT as well as how to use these skills in clinical practice. Participants will receive the necessary materials to implement informed DBT in their practice.
