Courses

Radically Open Dialectical Behavior Therapy One-Day Training

Registration: https://forms.gle/pykrMoTjLsFrZrhY8

The aim of this introductory workshop is to present participants to the theoretical foundations and new skills underlying Radically Open-Dialectical Behavior Therapy (RO DBT) for disorders of overcontrol. RO DBT is fully manualized and supported by three randomized controlled trials (RCTs) for refractory depression, two open-trials targeting adult Anorexia Nervosa, and one non-randomized trial targeting treatment resistant overcontrolled adults. New approaches designed to activate a neurobiological-based social-safety system, signal cooperation, and encourage genuine self-disclosure to improve psychological health and functioning will be introduced using slides, handouts, video clips, and role plays.

Parent Training in Dialectical Behavior Therapy

Registration: Coming Soon

Skills training is one of four core components of Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) and this has expanded to include working with parents of children and adolescents who are in DBT treatment. Parents learn skills that help them respond more effectively to their child, which creates opportunities for calmer communication and more consistent parenting. This introductory seminar will begin with a very brief overview of the basic structure of DBT parent training programs and the evidence base for its efficacy in reducing externalizing behaviors, defiance and non-compliance in children and adolescents based on empirically-supported literature.
