Dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT) is a treatment originally designed to treat borderline personality disorder (BPD). In recent years it has been increasingly used to treat many other disorders because of its usefulness in treating clients unable to manage emotions.
Following an introduction to DBT theory and how this treatment differs from traditional cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT), Sheri Van Dijk will discuss how DBT can be applied to working with clients facing a broad range of conditions such as depression, anxiety and bipolar disorder, in which emotion dysregulation plays a key role.
Through lecture and experiential exercises, you will explore the four modules of DBT skills (Core Mindfulness, Distress Tolerance, Emotion Regulation, and Interpersonal Effectiveness) and learn how to teach these skills to your clients. You will learn how to format DBT sessions to provide the structure your dysregulated clients need.
In addition, Sheri will introduce DBT strategies to help foster the therapeutic relationship, maximize therapeutic gains, and reduce the likelihood of therapist burnout.
