Providing individual DBT therapy for complex multi-diagnostic clients with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) is hard work and the road to treatment success is seldom straight-forward. It is easy to get mired down in the complexity and confusion of the targets, unrelenting crises, and in-session dysfunctional behavior. Once the most extreme behaviors quiet, we might long for the days when the session road map was simple: just do a chain analysis! But without cause, then what?
This advanced workshop is intended for anyone who wishes to significantly improve their practice of doing DBT individual therapy, mastering DBT case conceptualization, and creating high-octane treatment plans based on your client’s goals and your case conceptualization. This workshop is built on a framework of what we have learned over the past decades in supervising and mentoring DBT therapists through their learning and practice of DBT – all the way through the certification process. As such this workshop is particularly suited to meet the needs of experienced DBT clinicians wishing to significantly elevate their practice of DBT and prepare well for the DBT-LBC Clinician Certification process.
