Radically-open Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (RO DBT) is an evidence-based therapeutic approach closely related to traditional Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT). Where DBT would be effective for clients who are reporting issues with being able to control or regulate their emotions or behavior (“under controlled”), RODBT has been shown to be effective for clients who report issues related to “over-controlling” their emotions and/or behaviors. This session builds on a fundamental understanding of RODBT theory and techniques, to teach participants about specific RO DBT skills in greater depth. These skills are intended to be used with clients to address issues of over-control. Participants will review these skills and discuss/practice implementation of them in their clinical work with clients.
· Participants will briefly distinguish RO DBT theory and how it relates to DBT.
· Participants will define core skills implemented in RO DBT therapy.
· Participants will be able to identify specific strategies for implementing these RO-DBT skills interventions.
· Participants will discover methods for overcoming barriers or resistance when using these techniques.
· Participants will apply these strategies to clinical cases or examples during the program.
Audience & Skill Level:
· Intermediate- this program is intended for mental health providers (counselors, social workers, marriage and family therapists, etc.) who have some familiarity with DBT and RO DBT theory and techniques. Although introductory level training in these topics are not required to participate, those with less experience with these modalities may find it more difficult to understand the scope and impact of the skills discussed.
· 1:00-1:30 Review of RO DBT principles and theory,
· 1:30-2:00 Discussion of the overlap (and divergence) between RO DBT and DBT
· 2:00-3:00 Introduction, Review, and Application of Overcontrolled States of Mind
· 3:00-4:00 Introduction, Review, and Application of Self Enquiry Practice
· 4:00 Summary, Discussion, Q&A, Evaluations
To Receive Course Credit Participants Must:
