Location: The Blackwell Inn and Conference Center
Radically Open Dialectical Behavior Therapy (RO-DBT) is an evidence-based, transdiagnostic treatment that is now practiced in the United Kingdom, Europe and North America. It is increasingly recognized as effective for patients who exhibit emotional or behavioral over-control by observing three core components of emotional well-being: openness, flexibility and communication.
RO-DBT has been researched over the past 20 years for patients with chronic depression or anorexia nervosa. Research results suggest that it is effective in these and other more complex diagnoses which can be difficult to treat, such as autism spectrum disorders and obsessive-compulsive personality disorder.
This introductory workshop is for social workers, counselors, therapists, psychiatrists and psychologists. It will provide clinicians with the theoretical foundations underlying this form of DBT, as well as a few key skills that can be used to engage with clients.
