Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is a comprehensive, principle-driven treatment that requires clinicians to learn and apply a large number of strategies and protocols. Some strategies are needed in all sessions, whereas other strategies and protocols are context-dependent. Effective treatment delivery requires the clinician to know which strategies are needed or most effective given the specific characteristics of the situation and the client. In this workshop, we will review the major therapeutic strategies used in DBT that are taken into account when evaluating the degree to which therapists deliver DBT with adherence to the treatment manual. Emphasis will be placed on clarifying when and how to apply these strategies to improve adherence and competence during individual and group DBT sessions with adults and adolescents. Instructors will use lecture, live demonstrations, and extensive video review of individual and group DBT sessions to provide examples of adherent versus non-adherent application of DBT. Participants will also have multiple opportunities for hands-on practice and feedback throughout the workshop. This training assumes participants have general and applied knowledge of DBT treatment strategies and will not include a basic review of DBT. This training will be particularly valuable to clinicians planning to pursue certification in DBT, as it will provide information directly relevant to the practice of adherent DBT.

As a result of this training, I will be able to:
