Dialectical Behavioral Therapy New

As the premiere evidenced-based treatment for Borderline Personality Disorder, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy is an in-depth and effective way of creating change. However, the intensity of training and offering a comprehensive program can be a barrier for many therapists who want to engage with those patients needing more care. This workshop will provide an overview of the biosocial theory and the components of a comprehensive DBT program, including the unique aspects of intake sessions, skills group, telephone coaching calls, individual therapy, and the therapist consultation group. We will then focus on how an informed therapist can provide certain aspects of DBT in their practice to support patients in a DBT program or after they have completed a program. Finally, we will discuss how working with patients needing DBT affects personal beliefs and the energy of the therapist. There will be time for discussion to address specific concerns along with some case consultation.
