Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) has helped thousands of therapists improve their client’s life skills quicker and more effectively than they ever thought possible…
…but if you work with clients who are neurodivergent, you could be missing key ingredients to successfully integrate DBT practices into their lives.
Whether it be talking too fast or not giving enough processing time, using analogies or idioms that don’t work, or even expressing frustrations over client manner of participating, you might unwittingly be perceived as shutting them down or trying to fix them and make them neurotypical rather than equip them to build an abundant life in their own way.
Watch neurodiverse speaker and DBT expert Hannah Smith, as she shows you highly effective ways to adapt this powerful treatment for this population and learn how to coach these skills in an accessible & inclusive way.
Clients are crying out for skills to help them manage the overwhelm but not so they can “be neurotypical” – and DBT, like no other therapy, includes whole-person/wholebrained skills that can do this.
