Dialectal Behavior Therapy (DBT) has long been known as the go-to treatment model for Borderline Personality Disorder, or BPD. DBT has also been shown to be effective for persons without DBT who may be struggling with depression, anxiety, trauma, impulse control issues, and difficulty managing emotions. This workshop will introduce learners to the core tenets of DBT, including “DBT-informed treatment”, which is the application of DBT skills with non-BPD individuals. The two skills of distress tolerance and emotional regulation will be explored. Learners will obtain perspective on the use of DBT-informed skills and walk away with concrete tools and interventions to increase the client’s abilities to tolerate distress and regulate emotions.

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

  • Describe the core tenets of DBT and the basic foundations of the four core skills.
  • Identify the components and skills of distress tolerance and emotional regulation.
  • Integrate distress tolerance and emotional regulation skills into clinical practice.
