Workshop Description

The foundation of quality, effective therapy is having a sound understanding of a client’s presentation, symptoms, and treatment goals. Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) has been one of the most effective treatment approaches for working with clients who are considered to have high risk and interpersonally difficult presentations. The effectiveness of the treatment is built on a foundation of understanding the biosocial theory of the development of pervasive emotional dysregulation and a thorough evidence-based conceptualization and treatment plan for the client. This workshop will assist clinicians with understanding the development of pervasive emotional dysregulation that will lead to a thorough, well-defined treatment plan based on DBT principles, case formulation, and protocol. This workshop is beneficial for clinicians striving to increase their DBT adherence, and it is also beneficial for clinicians providing DBT-informed care.

Learning Objectives

Participants will be able to:

  1. Identify the 4 stages of DBT therapy and how to prioritize primary target problem behaviors within the stages.
  2. Understand target hierarchies in individual therapy and skills group modes of DBT.
