Training Description:

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is a skills-based, psychoeducational model designed to help clients learn and practice basic tools for managing compulsive, addictive, and self-harming behaviors; intrusive thoughts; intense or overwhelming feelings; chronic feelings of emptiness; ongoing relationship crises; and other painful experiences.

Rooted in principles of mindfulness practice, existential philosophy, developmental psychology, and cognitive/behavioral therapy, DBT skills training is particularly helpful to clients in the early stages of any kind of recovery process or those who find themselves stuck in destructive patterns that are hard to break.

This class is designed for graduate and post-graduate level mental health professionals who want to learn the basic theoretical framework of DBT and the Four Basic Modules that clients learn in DBT Skills Training. It also reviews the Auxiliary Modules that include the General Skills and Middle Path or Dialectical Thinking Skills.

Training Objectives:

This training introduces the evidence-based framework in which DBT was developed and then systematically takes clinicians through the four basic modules within the revised DBT curriculum. The four modules are designed to help clients manage overwhelming feelings and experiences and are as follows:

  1. Core Mindfulness
  2. Interpersonal Effectiveness
  3. Emotion Regulation
  4. Distress Tolerance

Taken as a whole, the four basic skill sets along with the auxiliary skills that are associated with DBT provide an excellent model for clinicians to use with their clients when they are faced with managing overwhelming feelings and situations.

Training Instructor:

Ryan Kennedy, PsyD, LAC, LMFT, LPC, RN, CACIII, DBTC, ACS, is the Executive and Training Director at Noeticus Counseling Center and Training Institute where there are multiple DBT groups and DBT is incorporated into their comprehensive, trauma-informed client care approach.

In addition, he is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT), a clinical member of the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy (AAMFT), and an avid supporter of systemetic approaches to change. He has extensively studied a number of approaches to working with couples including Satir Transformational Systemic Theory (STST), the Gottman Method® of Relationship Therapy, Pragmatic/Experiential Method of Improving Relationships (PEX), and Emotionally-Focused Therapy (EFT). He is especially interested in the intersection between individual development and social determinants of health and focused his doctoral research on integrating John Bowlby's Attachment Theory with Jean Baker Miller's Relational/Cultural Theory. Ryan has been a psychotherapist since 1993 and a counselor educator and clinical supervisor since 1996, serving as core faculty at Naropa University in the Graduate School of Psychology and as adjunct faculty at the University of Colorado Denver, Prescott College, and Front Range Community College. Ryan’s clinical training is in the areas of trauma and dissociative disorders, chronic and persistent mental illness, psychiatric nursing and psychopharmacology, addictions and recovery, domestic/family violence, and living with life-threatening illnesses.
