Description:  In this workshop, Drs. Golden and Gadol will present the foundational knowledge and skills of Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT). Clients with borderline personality disorder have been known as a challenging population among mental health professionals for decades, and DBT was developed to treat this population. Since this beginning, DBT has been successfully delivered to many other populations, and more clients are benefiting from DBT treatment. Drs. Golden and Gadol will cover the empirical support for the DBT and the core principles of DBT treatment, covering the theoretical understandings of borderline personality disorder, the assumptions and agreements about therapy in DBT, the structure of DBT treatment, and the skills that clients learn in DBT. Participants will learn through a combination of didactic material, role plays, and experiential activities.

Learning Objectives: 

  1. To understand Borderline Personality Disorder DSM-5 criteria as organized by DBT theory
  2. To understand the functions and modes of DBT treatment
  3. To understand DBT treatment planning, including stages and targets
  4. To understand the behavioral principles, behavioral analysis strategies, and change strategies that are used in DBT
