This three-hour workshop is designed to give an overview of Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), and is intended for mental health professionals who wish to acquaint themselves with the treatment or who are considering further training in DBT. DBT balances change-based technology (behavior therapy) with acceptance-based principals (validation). Both of these strategies will be introduced along with dialectical strategies (those that provide the balance of acceptance and change). The frame of DBT will be highlighted and the modes and functions of comprehensive DBT will be defined. Methods of instruction include lecture and videotapes of treatment to demonstrate the principles and strategies of DBT.

Educational Objectives:

  1. Describe the problems DBT is designed to address.
  2. Explain DBT treatment targets and structure of treatment for multi-problem, high-risk clients, including the modes and functions of comprehensive DBT programs.
  3. Use basic strategies used in DBT, including problem-solving, validation and dialectical strategies.
