About The Course

In the course of everyday life, we often face situations resulting in anger, sadness, fear, and frustration. This can often be hard to handle. To make matters worse, these strong emotions can interfere with relationships, work and learning, and enjoyment and happiness in life.

This workshop is an introduction to Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) intended for mental health professionals who wish to acquaint themselves with the treatment. The dialectical nature of DBT is explained via the balance between change-based technology (behaviour therapy) with acceptance-based principles (validation). It highlights the structure of DBT and defines the modes and functions of comprehensive DBT.

This workshop is appropriate for mental health professionals interested in learning about DBT at an introductory level. Methods of instruction include lecture, treatment demonstrations, and practice exercises to illustrate the principles and strategies of DBT.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Upon completion of this training, participants will be able to:
  2. Explain the dialectical world view of DBT.
  3. Discuss the evidence for use of DBT for various problems and populations.
  4. Describe the structure of treatment for individuals with multiple problems and high-risk life-threatening behaviours.
  5. Identify DBT treatment targets.
  6. Describe the basic strategies used in DBT, including problem solving, validation and dialectical strategies.
  7. Identify the skills modules taught in DBT.
