COURSE DESCRIPTION
This course presents an overview of DBT, the evidence-based
practice that has been proven most effective for clients with
extreme emotional dysregulation. By becoming adept at DBT,
clinicians can reduce their own anxiety, and increase their
effectiveness with clients who are complex, multi-diagnostic, and
may present with symptoms such as suicidality, dangerous
impulsivity, or aggression. DBT principles, as well as specific
individual and group therapy skills, are presented. This is a fastpaced interactive presentation that consistently receives some of
our highest reviews.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND?
Individuals who are interested in learning DBT therapy, or those
who have learned it but want to refresh their basic skills, will
benefit. This is a foundational training.
LEARNING OBJECTIVES
