Workshop 1: Using DBT in Individual Therapy with Emotionally Dysregulated Clients

About this workshop:

Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) was developed as a multi-modal intervention for chronically suicidal, self-harming and dysregulated clients. Most therapists don’t have access to a team, so individual therapy is their primary mode of treatment. In this 2-session series, we will focus on using DBT in Individual Therapy by providing a framework for formulating and treating clients who have difficulty regulating emotions. Session 2 will build on the foundations of session 1 and explore some intervention strategies. The aim of these sessions are to provide participants with tools they would be able to apply their practice, regardless of the context.
