An Intro to DBT


September 11 | 11:30 AM - 12:30 PM | Room 2592

Severe, chronic, and extensive sexual abuse sometimes leads to symptoms of Borderline Personality Disorder. Over the past three decades, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy was developed to treat the most difficult and deeply entrenched cycle of sexual abuse. In this workshop, participants will learn the history and rationale for the development of DBT as a distinct treatment model. In addition, participants will further learn the five main skill sets of DBT; how each of the five skill sets relates to specific clinical symptoms; and how to apply the five skill sets to clinical populations.

3) Participates will learn how each of the five skill sets relates to specific clinical symptoms.
