Description
DBT is an empirically supported treatment for Borderline Personality Disorder.  Recent research also demonstrates its efficacy in the treatment of transdiagnoistic emotion dysregulation (Neacsiu, Eberle, Kramer, Weismann, and Linehan, 2014).  This course will include theoretical information and pertinent research related to the efficacy of DBT for patients with Borderline Personality Disorder as well as other disorders conceptualized as disorders of emotional regulation (e.g., substance abuse, depression, binge eating, anger).  It will also include an overview of DBT specific therapeutic modalities and techniques.  The presentation will focus on updates to the DBT skills training manual since its original 1993 publication.
