This webinar has been specifically developed for mental health professionals seeking to implement a DBT or DBT-informed approach as individual therapists, case managers and skills coaches seeking to identify ways of identifying skills most relevant to their individual clients.

This webinar will explore DBT which offers a skills-based non‐judgemental approach to the management of clients with Extreme Emotion Dysregulation, Borderline Personality Disorder and/or clients who are self-harming. In particular key concepts of Core Mindfulness and Distress Tolerance as acceptance-based modules; teaching clients how to live with reality “as it is” will be explored. Emotion Regulation and Interpersonal Effectiveness as change‐oriented modules, teaching clients how to alter themselves or their environments will also be addressed.

DBT Strategies Discussed:

Stylistic strategies: How to reframe suicidal and other behaviours as part of the client’s learned ‘problem-solving’ repertoire. Participants will learn to balance active problem-solving with validating the client’s current emotional state and behavioural responses. This session will teach you to blend a ‘matter‐of‐fact’, irreverent attitude towards current and previous dysfunctional behaviours with warmth, flexibility and responsiveness- ness to the client.

Attention to contingencies: Ways to influence behaviour. BPD individuals actively avoid threatening situations. This session will assist participants to expose the client in session and in vivo to fear-eliciting stimuli. Participants will learn to arrange and encourage exposure.

Validation: This session will be an in‐depth practice of validating the client’s thoughts feelings and actions. Participants will learn to search for the grain of wisdom or truth in each client’s response and know how to communicate that to the client. The emphasis here is on building and maintaining a positive, interpersonal, collaborative relationship between the client and the therapist.

Format and organisation of sessions: Learn how to structure an Individual session and stay on task. Learn how to use diary cards to maximise the success of a session. Participants will learn to manage issues that come up in session in a timely manner and how to conduct chain analysis of problem behaviours.
