Dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT) is a treatment originally designed to treat borderline personality disorder, but it is increasingly being used to treat clients experiencing emotion dysregulation related to mood and anxiety disorders (e.g. depression, bipolar disorder, social anxiety disorder, general anxiety disorder, OCD).
In this interactive workshop, DBT expert Sheri Van Dijk will teach the four modules of skills taught in DBT (Core Mindfulness, Distress Tolerance, Emotion Regulation, and Interpersonal Effectiveness). You will learn how to format DBT sessions to provide the structure your dysregulated clients need. You will also have the opportunity to view video of real sessions as Sheri works with clients using DBT to treat a variety of problems related to emotion dysregulation.
You will learn:
- How to teach your clients the four sets of DBT skills to help them manage their emotions more effectively
- How to apply DBT skills to a range of problems and psychiatric illnesses
- Dialectical strategies to address clients who are "stuck" in therapy
- Skills to help you improve your own sense of efficacy in therapy, and reduce the likelihood of therapist burnout
