When working with clients with chronic anxiety, depression, personality disorders, or eating disorders, progress can be so slow-moving…

…You may start to question whether you’re able to help at all.

But in the last 20 years, researchers made a discovery that holds the key to getting many of your clients unstuck!

They’ve discovered an underlying personality structure identified as early as childhood…

And if it's left unaddressed, many of these children eventually develop chronic and co-morbid conditions that are difficult to treat.

But Dr. Thomas Lynch, former program director at Duke University and professor emeritus at Southampton University, has developed a new therapy to treat these issues at their core.
Introducing Radically Open Dialectical Behavior Therapy: Level 1 Training Course

Here’s what makes Radically Open DBT (RO DBT) different…
  • This new treatment works for clients who are over-controlled, guarded, mask their emotion around others, and work hard to keep up appearances.
  • RO DBT helps clients learn to be more open to other perspectives, be more vulnerable… and build more meaningful relationships with others.
  • RO DBT has been rigorously tested and has been effective at helping thousands of clients around the world start to build more connected, happy, healthy lives.

Now you can start helping your clients with chronic depression, anxiety, and eating disorders with Dr. Lynch’s new online Level 1 training course.

RO DBT Has Already Helped Thousands of Clients Worldwide… And You Can Start Using It In Your Practice NOW!

Over the last 20 years, this treatment was tested in randomized studies at Duke University and around the world, being funded by the National Institute of Health and other top health organizations.

And the results have been astonishing for clients across diagnoses.

Clients who had chronic depression saw their symptoms improve over a few months… after struggling with these feelings for several years.

Clients with anxiety that didn’t respond to other evidence-based treatments reported feeling less anxious after using RO-DBT.

And it’s even been effective for treating clients with other issues connected to overcontrol like anorexia nervosa.
