Course Description:

The Game-Changing Guide to Integrating DBT in Your Practice

For clients who struggle to regulate and cope with their emotions, Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) can bring about lasting behavioral change – even if they aren’t diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder. Learn to adapt DBT to meet the needs of your practice and advance your clients’ treatment goals across a wide spectrum of behavioral health conditions. This one-day seminar will teach you to direct growth in each of the DBT skill areas (emotion regulation, mindfulness, interpersonal effectiveness, and distress tolerance) and guide efforts in moment-to-moment resilience and non-reactivity. Led by Dr. Andrew Bein, a seasoned instructor with an energetic, hands-on approach to education, you will quickly master strategies for enhancing motivation and strengthening client engagement, as well as explaining the theory and science of DBT accessibly to clients. By the end of the day, you will have the tools necessary to integrate DBT immediately into your practice and help your clients finally take control of their emotions and their lives.
