This workshop provides clinicians with well-established practices for addressing therapy interfering behaviours often encountered in work with multi-problem clients, such as failure to complete homework, lying, anger outbursts, lateness, missing sessions, and a variety of other behaviours that can make treatment challenging.
Many of the strategies and principles taught during this workshop come from Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), which is an efficacious treatment for borderline personality disorder (BPD). DBT Therapists use dialectical theory, behavioural theory, and mindfulness/acceptance based approaches to manage behaviour that gets in the way of therapy effectively, efficiently, and compassionately.
Participants will learn how to understand, assess, and manage behaviours that pose challenges to treatment as well as learning how to address some of their own potential therapy interfering behaviour
