Help clients develop a life worth living by applying Dialectical Behavior Therapy to most major mental health conditions. Confidently apply DBT, troubleshoot common problems in group therapy, and enhance motivation and commitment to treatment.
Practical Approach to Application of DBT
People's learning and change styles are influenced by multiple factors including genetic makeup, early learning experiences, previous teaching, culture, and motivation. Clients with various mental health conditions have learned harmful coping strategies that keep them stuck. These behaviors interfere with their abilities to develop a life worth living.
Clients learn better and recover more quickly when therapeutic teaching methods match their preferred learning styles. However, a gap exists between therapists' knowledge and application that can often be the difference between lasting behavioral change and continued struggle for their clients. This 1-day seminar teaches you how to use each of the DBT skill areas (mindfulness, distress tolerance, emotion regulation, and interpersonal effectiveness) to effectively promote change in both a group and individual setting. Gain an understanding of how to apply these skills to clients with multiple and complex mental health conditions. At the end of the course, you can confidentially apply the step-by-step process for conducting DBT, troubleshoot common problems in group therapy, and enhance motivation and commitment to treatment.
