Description:

Competency Area: Clinical Techniques & Methods/Interventions
Restricted to Year IV students from April 10-24; open to all other classes on April 25. After providing an overview of this model, developed by Marsha Linehan for the treatment of disordered behaviors, including the underlying dialectical and behavioral principles, this course focuses on the following DBT treatment strategies: dialectical, validation, problem-solving, managing contingencies, observing limits, skills training, exposure, cognitive modification, stylistic, case management, structural, crisis and suicidal behavior treatment strategies. The outcome research on this empirically-supported treatment is evaluated. Lecture, discussion, role-plays, videotape, mindfulness exercises, and small group tasks are utilized to facilitate the learning of the DBT model.
