Event Details

Radically Open DBT: For those of us who are over-controlled

Presented by Jason Luoma, Ph.D., Shadee Hardy, LCSW, and Bryce Doehne, Psy.D.


Who:  Does it feel like no one really gets what it is like to be you, especially some of the closest people to you? Have you learned to mask, suppress or control hurt and tender feelings? Do you consider yourself shy? Do you pride yourself on your self-control and yet at times feel overwhelmed and underappreciated? Is it hard for you to enjoy or even take downtime or to break one of your own rules?  Do you sometimes feel all alone, even surrounded by people, and no one would guess how miserable you feel on the inside?


What: Come explore how to put joy back in your life.  Learn concrete skills to loosen up your temperament (the way you are wired) so it works for you and not against you. Come hear about cutting edge research on effective skills to change your old patterns and habits, learn how to enhance intimacy and reduce very private experience of self-loathing or criticism. These skills are particularly helpful with perfectionism, over-work, and restrictive eating disordered behaviors. To learn more about RO-DBT visit


When: Thursdays 6:00 – 8:00 pm. We have rolling admission, so you can join the class at any point. Just pick a ticket to let us know you'd like to talk about joining. The complete class is a 30-week commitment. The first class of this round begins November 29, 2018.


Where: 3700 N Williams Ave, Portland, OR 97227
