Thursday 09 July, 2020
This 4-day workshop is designed to provide intensive training in how to integrate PTSD treatment into standard DBT. Participants will learn the DBT Prolonged Exposure (DBT PE) protocol for treating PTSD, one of the newest developments in DBT research and practice. This protocol can be added to standard DBT to allow for integrated treatment of PTSD, suicidal and self-injurious behavior, and other co-occurring problems. Participants will learn how to use DBT strategies to prepare high-risk and multi-problem clients for the DBT PE protocol as well as how to determine when clients are ready to begin formal PTSD treatment. The structure and procedures of the DBT PE protocol will be taught in a session-by-session format with extensive opportunities to watch video examples and practice delivering each of the primary treatment components. Particular attention will be paid to discussing strategies for overcoming common problems that arise during PTSD treatment with high-risk and multi-problem clients as well as how to tailor the treatment to address the complex characteristics of this client population.
- Identify DBT strategies to use to prepare high-risk and multi-problem clients for the DBT PE protocol.
- Determine if clients are ready for formal PTSD treatment.
- Describe the rationale for using in vivo and imaginal exposure to treat PTSD.
- Implement the core procedures of the DBT PE protocol (i.e., in vivo and imaginal exposure and processing).
