Presented by Alison Franklin
Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) was originally designed to help females who struggled with chronic suicidal thoughts and non-suicidal self-injurious behavior. However, over the decades this treatment has been found to be very effective with both males and females, living with a variety of different challenges. In this two-day training, participants will be introduced to the DBT model, as well as to a variety of skills that can be implemented during individual and family sessions. Criteria for Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD), Bipolar Disorder, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (CPTSD) will also be discussed and participants will gain a better understanding of how to identify key differences between each diagnosis. Participants will also receive a refresher on burnout and self-care, and how to implement better self-care practices for themselves, their colleagues and their clients.
Involves a brief overview of the DBT model, origin, concepts and training requirements, the biosocial theory of emotion regulation (basically different concepts of how BPD develops) and a discussion surrounding the DSM criteria for BPD and how it may present differently in males vs. females, as well as in adults vs. adolescents. Also, a review of the symptoms for PTSD and CPTSD and how to distinguish them from BPD. Join a discussion surrounding empathy vs. sympathy from the perspective of the DBT framework and how to provide validation—for joining purposes and for de-escalation needs the importance of supervision and burnout—covering needs for both supervisors and staff.
Join a brief overview of each of the 4 modules (mindfulness, interpersonal effectiveness, emotion regulation and distress tolerance) and the goals of each module. Learn when to utilize and review multiple examples of skills from each module and when participants can utilize them in their practice, plus time for case consultations (participants can send information on a case prior to day 2 or present that day for feedback and guidance).
This is a FREE virtual training for NYSCA CAC/MDT members in good standing.
