Dialectical Behavioral Therapy: An Introduction

Dialectical Behavioral Therapy: An Introduction 

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is a cognitive-behavioral therapy that has amassed empirical support for a range of psychological problems in clinical and nonclinical populations. This course introduces the origins and theoretical underpinnings of DBT. You will learn about the structure and processes involved in conducting DBT as well as the evidence supporting this approach. You will also learn the strategies DBT facilitators use to engage people, and you will be guided through the key elements of the DBT skill-based treatment modules. This course is designed to help you avoid common pitfalls in dealing with individuals who have difficulties regulating emotions. Using a blend of theory and research-based information with detailed case studies, this course will help you utilize the basic principles and treatment components of DBT. The course concludes with a discussion of the primary therapeutic strategies used in DBT and the core qualifications of DBT providers. This training is appropriate for licensed behavioral health clinicians who are interested in learning more about what DBT is and its primary applications. It is important to note that while this course provides an overview of DBT, it does not constitute sufficient training to begin using it with clients. You should attend a live training to supplement this course before beginning DBT work with clients.
