About this workshop:
Chronically suicidal, self-harming and dysregulated clients live in a world of unrelenting crisis. Their attempts at solving problems often lead to dire emotional, physical and relationship consequences. Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) was developed as a multi-modal intervention with these challenges in mind.
Session 1 will focus on 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 the use of DBT in individual therapy. The aim of these sessions are to provide participants with tools they would be able to apply their practice, regardless of the context.
