Presented by Maggie Mullen, LCSW
This training will outline the basics of dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), an evidence-based psychotherapy for emotion dysregulation that helps people become more mindful as they simultaneously work on improving interpersonal relationships, tolerating distress, and regulating intense emotions. This presentation will introduce practical applications of DBT through discussion, vignettes, video clips, and opportunities to practice. By examining the four modules of DBT (distress tolerance, emotional regulation, mindfulness, and interpersonal effectiveness), learn how to apply DBT concepts and principles to benefit clients. There will be an emphasis on practical skill-building interventions derived from DBT, rather than on building a full DBT program. The intended audience is any clinician with an interest in DBT.
