This workshop will introduce you to Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), a model of intervention that is designed to reduce problems associated with poor affect and behavioral regulation. Theoretical foundations that are associated with the development of problems with emotional/behavioral dysregulation will be discussed in this presentation, and the primary emphasis of the workshop will be on intervention concepts.

The primary objectives of this workshop include:

  • Developing Core Mindfulness, Interpersonal Effectiveness, Emotional Regulation, and Distress Tolerance.
