Introduction to Using Dialectical Behavior Therapy in Individual Sessions

January 19, 2018


Working with people with multiple, complex problems can lead to clinicians feeling discouraged and frustrated. Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) is an evidence-based treatment that offers a compassionate way of understanding and addressing the difficulties these, often high risk, clients experience.

In this experiential workshop, participants will learn how to conceptualize clients’ difficulties utilizing a DBT case formulation approach. They will also learn how to conduct both behavioural and solution analyses for problematic behaviours.

You will learn to:

  • Develop a DBT case formulation
  • Increase client motivation to work on problematic behaviours
  • Conduct a behavioural analysis and solution analysis of problematic behaviours
  • Get unstuck from poralizations with clients

This training is suitable for clinicians who have some prior knowledge of basic DBT theory and skills and who are interested in furthering their ability to use DBT in individual therapy sessions.

Facilitator: Lyndsey Davies MSW, RSW
