Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) was developed for complex, comorbid patients who have chronic suicidality and/or self-harm and emotion dysregulation. This training will give an overview of the philosophy and structure of DBT, and then focus on the DBT approach to assessing and managing patients with suicidal thoughts and behaviors. Participants will learn how to assess short- and long-term risk, conduct phone coaching with suicidal individuals, and develop and implement a crisis plan.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is a treatment approach that was developed for complex, comorbid patients who have chronic suicidality and/or self-harm and significant emotion dysregulation. DBT is a comprehensive, behavioral treatment approach that is delivered in both individual and group modalities, and it emphasizes mindfulness and skills for coping with intense emotions. DBT conceptualizes suicidality as a client’s attempt to escape from painful emotions and solve problems that seem unsolvable. DBT is not just a suicide prevention program; the focus is on helping clients develop a life worth living in the long term.

 

This training will give an overview of the philosophy and structure of DBT, and then focus on the DBT approach to assessing and managing patients with suicidal thoughts and behaviors. Participants will learn how to assess short- and long-term risk and conduct phone coaching with suicidal individuals. Participants will take part in role plays and exercises designed to provide practice in assessing and managing the types of situations that arise when working with real clients. Finally, participants will learn some of the DBT crisis management skills and how to incorporate them when developing and implementing a crisis plan.

 

Attendees will be able to:

 

    1. List chronic and acute risk factors for suicide.
    2. Describe how to talk with suicidal individuals to assess suicide risk.
    3. Apply best practice guidelines for suicide risk management.
    4. Implement an evidence-based protocol for intervening in suicide crisis situations.
    5. List five DBT skills that you can recommend to individuals in crisis.
    6. Document risk assessment using the LRAMP.
