About this event

Most people will do just about anything to not feel overwhelmed with unwanted and painful emotions. However, people often will get stuck in cycles of behaviors that lead them to “numb out” or resort to harmful coping strategies. Without the skills to tolerate emotional distress, people tend to avoid thinking about and doing things that bring up uncomfortable emotions. They may continue to use their unhealthy coping habits or withdraw from participating in daily living.

Clinicians can help clients build their distress tolerance, give them the tools to stop the spiral of avoidant behaviors that only increase distress in the long term, and open the door to life-changing growth.This workshop is designed to introduce clinician’s to specific Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) skills from the Distress Tolerant Skill Module. The instructors will give an overview DBT as a modality of treatment, however, the focus of this workshop will be to teach and demonstrating practical Distress Tolerant skills that can be implemented in various settings. Lecture, videos, role-play, as well as experiential and hands-on activities will be used to help participants develop capability and effective implementation in their respective settings.
