Course Description:

When Therapy Blows Up: Treating Therapy Interfering Behavior Across Modes in DBT© is for individuals who have been practicing DBT Individual Psychotherapy and/or DBT Skills Training in the context of a comprehensive program. This training is designed to strengthen skills in keeping DBT adherent and treating the inevitable obstacles that occur in DBT individual psychotherapy, DBT Skills Training Group, DBT coaching, DBT family interventions and in our own consultation team.

As we address each mode, therapists will be invited to discuss issues in the mode that make treatment difficult for the therapist and/or increase client dissatisfaction or drop out. In addition, DBT principles, strategies and interventions will be practiced for each mode.

This is a highly experiential training with myriad learning opportunities. All participants will be expected to demonstrate and receive feedback on DBT principles and strategies.
