Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) is an evidence-based form of cognitive-behavioral therapy for teenagers and adults who experience significant trouble managing their emotions, thoughts, and behaviors. DBT for family work also addresses the adolescent/parent struggles which can include addressing the shifting power dynamics as an adolescent matures, determining what is “normal” behavior for the adolescent, and assessing needs for adolescent independence. In this training, we explore the core concepts and benefits of DBT in working with teens and families and explore interventions and strategies for both group and individual sessions.
