Event description
This training is to help practitioners learn how to apply Dialectical Behaviour Therapy to complex clients.

About this Event

Dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT) is a comprehensive treatment approach for chronically suicidal clients. However, in the last decade DBT has received empirical support to treat other populations including eating disorders, addiction, anger problems and other mood disorders. Additionally, it has been adapted for adolescent mental health populations, inpatient, residential and forensic settings. DBT clients are taught more skillful ways to regulate their emotions, effectively manage the distressing situations in their lives, and improve and maintain relationships with the people around them. These skills are taught within a caring treatment relationship that accepts the client for who and where they are, while maintaining a movement towards creating "a life worth living".

At the end of this training participants will be able to:

1. Understand how to conceptualize a case based on the principles and theory guiding DBT

2. Identify how to structure the individual therapy session

3. Describe and use commitment, dialectical and stylistic strategies common to DBT

4. Identify core treatment strategies for managing difficult in session behavior and avoiding therapeutic impasses

5. Learn how to effectively implement Phone Coaching principles and strategies to support clients

6. Understand the function of consultation team and how to run an effective consultation team.

The training combines both didactic, role play, video and experiential exercises to support participants both in their understanding and delivery of dialectical behaviour therapy with their clients.
