DBT skills groups have been essential in helping people better regulate emotions and deal with distress for a plethora of diagnoses, including people with neurodiverse brains. However, with the emergence of better research about how neurodiverse brains process the world, DBT has been following the lead to revamp its delivery to better fit this research. In this webinar, we will look at neuroscience and how DBT works, and follow with learning some skills that have been tweaked to better fit our neurodiverse clients.

Upon completion of this training, participants will be able to:

  • Define the basics of skills modules in DBT
  • Understand an overview of neurodiversity
  • Gain the ability to teach some neurodivergent-friendly DBT skills to clients in session
