In this four-hour workshop, Dr. McFarr will provide a brief overview of Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) and include the three modules of skills used in clinical practice. These three modules include: Distress Tolerance, Interpersonal Effectiveness, and Emotion Regulation, with the core of each module consisting of mindfulness skills. Dr. McFarr will provide a brief introduction to dialectical skills and ways they are incorporated in treatment.

Participants will be introduced to the Biosocial Theory to gain an understanding of biologi­cal and environmental bases of Borderline Personality Disorder. Using this theoretical basis, workshop participants will learn dialectical skills to use with and teach clients. Attendees will learn to identify DBT skills that target problematic behaviors in emotion regulation. Participants will have the opportunity for active practice during this workshop.
