Our Director of Training and Consultant Trainer has just released the following paper on Principles of Skills Assessment in Dialectical Behaviour Therapy.
The paper reviews the common obstacles in DBT and how to overcome them as well as stages of skills training, acquisition, strengthening, and generalization.
Checklists are also provided for assessing problems at each stage. They have also proposed a new assumption that, when clients say DBT skills don’t work they are telling the truth.
