Dialectical Behavior Therapy - Assisting our Clients in Regulating Their Emotions
Published on May 14, 2012 Since its inception in the early 1990's, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy has advanced significantly beyond its original clinical purpose of treating clients with border line personality disorder. DBT is now being considered an effective practice with a multitude of client populations including teens, clients with eating disorders, clients with a history of substance abuse, and many others. Based around a foundation of finding ways for clients to experience positive feelings towards themselves and their environments, DBT is focused specifically on rekindling a client's feelings of hope, peace, and joy. During this webinar we will visit these core philosophies and best practices that can apply to your client approach on a regular basis, yet also understand the role of the therapist in a client's success and how your interactions and attitude impact overall client outcome. Join Beth Freimuth as she presents these items and a real world example of how DBT is used in an inpatient residential treatment center at Michael's House Treatment Center. Learning Objectives: Learn about the 4 DBT modules. Learn about the traditional DBT phases of treatment. Who is appropriate for DBT. Learn about the core DBT philosophy. Defining the DBT Therapist.
