Description

  • Help your clients get “unstuck” in therapy, and move toward healing and positive change
  • Learn the four DBT skills modules and how to effectively teach these skills to your clients
  • Integrate DBT into your existing practice and develop skills and confidence to market yourself as a DBT-informed therapist

Join DBT expert Sheri Van Dijk, MSW, and learn how to use dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) to treat clients with difficulties managing their emotions. Improve your ability to use DBT skills with clients experiencing a variety of mental health problems such as:

  • bipolar disorder
  • depression
  • anxiety
  • difficulties managing anger
  • low self-esteem

In this intensive 3-day workshop, DBT will be de-mystified and you will learn how to use this highly effective and flexible therapy to better treat your clients and achieve positive results.

Through lecture, experiential exercises, case consultation you will explore the four modules of DBT: Core Mindfulness, Emotion Regulation, Distress Tolerance and Interpersonal Effectiveness. Learn tools and strategies to improve the therapeutic relationship and reduce feelings of ineffectiveness and burn-out. Viewing video-tapes of Sheri’s real-life sessions will provide you with a better understanding of the flow of individual sessions as well as how to balance accepting clients where they are with pushing them to make positive changes. Learn how to teach skills in individual sessions.

Bringing her years of experience in both private practice and as part of a community hospital; and working with both individuals and DBT-informed groups, Sheri’s practical, inspiring, and highly praised workshop will give you evidence-based skills that can be immediately put into practice.
