Description

This is an all day training on DBT. Balance Stress Mangagement & Therapy (www.balancestresstx.com) will be providing all-day beverages, breakfast, snacks, & lunch!!

This training will provide an overview of Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, the foundation of it’s usefulness, application of skills to equip professionals with knowledge of individual DBT skills, take away tools to use in individual work, and the knowledge to provide individual skills coaching, and adjunct therapy to skills group participants.

This training will provide an overview of DBT, and walk through each of the four modules that make up the DBT model: Mindfulness, Distress Tolerance, Emotional Regulation, and Interpersonal Effectiveness. The training will provide some interactive learning with each skill set, as well as how to use a chain analysis, integrate brain based psychotherapy, ACT and CBT into teaching skills. Consistent with Sharon’s method of therapy this training will include strategies of incorporating DBT that are creative and designed to be flexible according to individual needs of clients.

The training is based on Marsha Linehan’s original ideas for managing high risk and impulsive emotionally driven behavior. It also incorporates ideas and tools developed by other leaders in the field who have taken DBT to a broader level to use with a wide range of issues, including use with couples, children and a variety of mood disorders. It is intended to be a training for those who have little knowledge and experience with DBT and want to learn more. It will be particularly useful for those who may be working with clients who have some DBT knowledge and/or are actively in a DBT group and need a therapist who is knowledgeable and can help them apply skills to daily life.

It will also be useful for therapists who are looking for new, easy to teach skills that may help a stuck client feel they have something tangible to work with for self-improvement.

This training does not provide a certification in DBT.
