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.
