Participants will learn about the challenges one can experience in regulating emotional, behavioral, and cognitive responses typically seen when one has an emotion dysregulation disorder, such as Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD.) Participants will learn how overwhelming emotion can lead to an individual engaging in dangerous, life-threatening behaviors (i.e., self-harm, substance use, etc.) as a means to cope with and manage the intensity of the emotion. Participants will orient to an array of therapeutic strategies within the DBT framework that clients can learn to alleviate the effects of having a pervasive emotional dysregulation disorder (e.g., BPD.) Participants will gain a working knowledge of therapist-client relationship within the DBT framework. This course is approved for 3 CEUs through the following boards: Nevada Board of Examiners for Social Workers, Nevada Board of Psychological Examiners, and Nevada Board of Examiners for Marriage and Family Therapists.
