Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is an evidence based treatment developed by Marsha Linehan, Ph.D., for complex multi-diagnostic individuals with pervasive emotion dysregulation and concurrent high risk suicidal behaviors. Over the past two and a half decades, research has consistently demonstrated DBT as being effective for patients with a variety of complex presentations including eating disorders, substance abuse, and other disorders where emotion dyscontrol is a core issue. This dyscontrol often interferes with treatment as well as long-term maintenance of therapeutic progress and is essential to address in a structured manner during clinical services. This workshop will use a session-to-session birds eye view of walking a client through DBT in a standard outpatient setting. It will use this teaching model to demonstrate the use of DBT principles and skills in a concrete, “real world” manner to offer clinicians of all orientation a better grasp of DBT principles and intervention strategies. This course will also teach the application of the concept of dialectics to both every day and complex clients, review diary cards and structure individual sessions, and conduct a behavior chain analysis and solution analysis.
