The purpose of this training is to provide participants with knowledge in and understanding of Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT). Ultimately, the goal is to effectively implement these techniques in clinical practice. This program will seek to deepen understanding of DBT principles including mindfulness, distress tolerance, emotion regulation, and interpersonal effectiveness. Participants will examine applications across diverse clinical populations and review Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs, emphasizing the role of DBT in crisis/risk management. Populations for which DBT can be particularly effective will be explored, including eating disorders, substance use, anger regulation, borderline personality disorder, self-
harm, and suicidality. Participants will be able to integrate DBT with other evidence-based therapies, fostering a holistic approach to treatment to improve client outcomes.
Once registered, a follow-up email will be provided with additional details as well as the Zoom dial-in details.
