About the workshop:
Novel Applications of Dialectical Behavior Therapy and Affect Moderation
Many workshops have addressed the application of DBT to borderline personality disorder. However, DBT’s Biosocial Theory – that biology and environment are co-conspirators which activate emotion dysregulation in vulnerable individuals – has application across many diagnostic presentations where emotional lability challenges therapeutic alignment. This workshop will help clinicians manage the “therapy interfering behaviors” which may arise during treatment, either on the part of the client and/or the practitioner.
With a deeper understanding of the associated biopsychosocial etiology, clinicians will be more able to form constructive, motivating and non-judgmental responses when faced this challenge. Through lecture, PowerPoint and interactive case studies, participants will learn to effectively manage affective and behavioral disturbances which block therapeutic progress.
