Averting the Crisis: Coaching in DBT


About this Course

Annie McCall, MA, LMHC teaches effective behavioral principals and coaching strategies for parents, line staff and loved ones.

Everyone in a client’s life has potential to be a coach for new behavior.  When in Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), clients attend skills training group that teaches them new behaviors designed to help them regulate their emotions, their relationships and tolerate crises and stress.  When emotions go up, often those new skills are hard for clients to access.  Coaches help to remind DBT participants of the new behaviors in the heat of the moment.  Whether you are a parent, loved one, line staff in a residential facility, nurse in an inpatient unit, case manager, correctional or parole officer, or a psychiatrist, your role in helping transfer what is learned in a DBT skills group into day to day life is critical.  Effective coaching helps everyone because it decreases crises and stress on the client and his or her environment. 

This course is designed to help line staff, family members, educators, anyone in DBT clients’ lives, to quickly and effectively coach them in the moment. 

The course will include:

  • specific teaching on DBT skills that can be used efficiently;
  • principles that increase the chance that your DBT client will respond to the coaching; and
  • a clear, concise method of coaching new behavior. 

Online access allows participants to be flexible in when they attend the class.  Each lesson will have materials and practices between classes.
