This is Session IV: Dialectical Strategies
DBT is an effective, broad-based cognitive behavioral treatment shown by extensive research to be useful for patients with many disorders involving emotional dysregulation and interpersonal difficulties. DBT is comprised of multiple sets of skills and strategies, and this summer workshop series will provide clinicians with advanced knowledge and application of four components of DBT including: (1) suicide risk assessment and phone coaching for suicidal behavior; (2) an overview of the biosocial model and pre-treatment strategies; (3) chain analysis and contingency management; and (4) dialectical strategies. Participants will leave with the practical knowledge to directly implement in their practice. There will be opportunities to observe role play examples as well as to practice skills.
