14 Hour DBT Fundamentals Training starting Sept. 6th

The DBT Fundamentals Training: a Trans-Diagnostic Treatment for Emotion Dysregulation

8 Sessions of DBT Training for Psychotherapists, Educators, and others in the Helping Professions.  Starting September 2017.

Chapel Hill, North Carolina

 

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is a highly effective treatment developed by Marsha M. Linehan, PhD for multi-diagnostic, severely disordered individuals with pervasive emotion dysregulation. While originally developed for difficult-to-treat patients with borderline personality disorder, research has demonstrated that DBT is also effective for individuals with a variety of complex problems, such as eating disorders and substance abuse, where emotion dysregulation is often at the core of the client’s problems. DBT, with its dialectical framework, provides a behavioral systems approach also shown to benefit couples and families. DBT has been adapted for use in a variety of settings, including inpatient hospitals, schools, residential programs, and prisons, as well as outpatient clinics.

One of  Marsha Linehan's earliest recommendations was that therapists participate in a minimum of 2 days of training in DBT before helping facilitate a Skills Group. The 8 session format will allow greater opportunity to supplement the training with additional resources and practice between sessions.

Benefits of the 14 Hour DBT Introductory Fundamentals Training over 8 Sessions:

1. Gain understanding of these key DBT fundamentals:

  • The Development of DBT into a Trans-Diagnostic Treatment for Emotion Dysregulation

  • The Structure of DBT: Stages of Treatment and Target Hierarchy

  • Understanding Emotion Dysregulation, the Biosocial Theory and the Transactional Model

  • When and How to Use the Acceptance Strategies, featuring Validation

  • The Behavioral Change Strategies, featuring Problem-Solving

  • Overview of DBT Skills of Core Mindfulness, Emotion Regulation, Interpersonal Effectiveness, and Distress Tolerance

  • What is Dialectics and How to Use the Dialectical Strategies

  • DBT Behavior Chain Analysis and Case Formulation (to identify factors controlling problem behaviors)

  • Strategies for Adapting DBT to Unique Settings Using DBT Functions and Modes

2.  This training meets one of the basic requirements (along with being on a DBT Team and providing the 5 Functions/Modes of comprehensive DBT) for therapists to be part of the TADBiT DBT Therapist Directory. For those of you who have been participant-observers in DBT Skills Group or in DBT Skillz for Therapists, this training provides a theoretical and practical foundation that complements your experiential learning.

3.  Participants who complete the 8 sessions will earn a certificate of completion for the 14 hours of training. While past experience indicates that these hours can be applied to certain categories of continuing education for LCSWs and LMFTs, participants assume responsibility to confirm this with the respective licensure boards. For example, it is Level B for psychologists.

Who Should Attend?

This course is designed for mental health and other professionals (clergy, teachers, professors, nurses, physicians). Supporting self and others in developing skillful compassion increases effective emotional coping and well-being.

Description:  Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) is an evidence-based treatment for individuals with severe emotion regulation difficulties and borderline personality disorder (BPD). The treatment comprises four stages that are structured based on the client’s level of disorder (e.g., severity, complexity), and each stage includes both primary and secondary treatment targets. In Stage 1, the primary treatment target is severe behavioral dyscontrol (e.g., suicidality, self-injury), and the associated treatment goal is behavioral control. In Stage 2, which often requires treatment for trauma and PTSD, the primary treatment target is emotional avoidance and the associated goal is non-anguished emotional experiencing. Across both stages, clinicians use chain analyses to identify a client’s secondary treatment targets (e.g., emotional vulnerability, apparent competence, inhibited grieving), or the underlying dialectical dilemmas and behavioral patterns that are related to problem behaviors.

Thus, effective therapeutic work with multi-diagnostic clients relies on careful case conceptualizations and chain analyses. This workshop will help DBT clinicians improve their ability to assess primary and secondary treatment targets and create case formulations to address what is most relevant in multi-diagnostic clients – particularly those in need of treatment for PTSD. In addition, clinicians will be given an overview of the DBT-Prolonged Exposure (DBT-PE) protocol for the treatment of comorbid BPD and PTSD.

This workshop is an intermediate to advanced workshop for clinicians with knowledge of DBT.

Trainer:  Lorie Ritschel, Ph.D., is Clinical Assistant Professor of Psychiatry at the University of North Carolina School of Medicine and is a licensed psychologist with a private practice in Durham, NC. She is a certified DBT therapist and an expert trainer of DBT through Behavioral Tech, LLC. Dr. Ritschel specializes in the treatment of depression, anxiety, and emotion dysregulation in adolescents and adults using Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, and Behavioral Activation.

Description: Suicide and self-injury are significant public health problems and are all too common in emotionally dysregulated youth. Research supports the use of Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) as a treatment for multi-diagnostic youth who engage in suicidal and non-suicidal self-injurious behaviors. DBT uses a blend of acceptance and change strategies along with a particular session structure to engage adolescents in treatment and to target these problematic behaviors. In this workshop, clinicians will learn about the treatment framework, session structure, and core strategies from DBT that support work with emotionally sensitive youth. Participants will learn how to differentiate between suicidal and self-harming behaviors, how to assess the function of these behaviors, and how to balance change and acceptance strategies to promote growth and change in dysregulated adolescents. In addition, some general principles and considerations of working with emotionally sensitive youth (e.g., confidentiality issues, using creative reinforcers in therapy, stylistic considerations for the therapist) will be discussed.
