DBT Skills Training
DBT Skills are empirically supported strategies to help a variety of clients enhance their capabilities to build a life worth living. They are a core component of Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), the evidence-based treatment for BPD and co-occurring disorders.
Learn how to apply and teach the effective DBT Skills of Core Mindfulness, Interpersonal Effectiveness, Distress Tolerance, and Emotion Regulation in an incredibly thorough and interactive online learning environment.
DBT Validation Principles & Strategies
Validation is an integral part of maintaining any therapeutic relationship and can keep clients positively engaged in therapy and working toward their long-term goals. Virtual clients described in this course represent the most emotionally dysregulated DBT clients with multiple problems. Learn and practice the six levels of DBT validation through interactive exercises, stories, metaphors, case examples, and commentary.
DBT Chain Analysis Training
Chain Analysis is about getting a complete picture of a behavior — what it is, how it started, and what keeps the behavior repeating. DBT Chain Analysis is a critical, core component of Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), and a basic skill of CBT-focused therapies. When done correctly, both clinician and client can decipher the variables at work during a behavior, identify patterns, and work collaboratively to put new behaviors into effect.
Foundations of Exposure Therapies
Exposure therapies are the most effective, evidence-based treatments for anxiety disorders. The principles of exposure are also imperative to the success of most effective therapies, including DBT and CBT, as a means of treating problems of avoidance.
This course teaches clinicians how to conduct exposure in a step-by-step, interactive fashion. Learn exposure principles and procedures through dynamic engagement with virtual clients and media-rich eBooks.
Transforming Difficult Moments in Therapy
Effective Strategies with Dr. Marsha Linehan and Other DBT Experts
Treating clients with multiple disorders is already difficult. When clients challenge therapists with severely dysfunctional behaviors it can become extremely difficult to continue with effective treatment. This training is designed to address difficult moments in therapy with effective and compassionate responses to problematic in-session client behaviors.
Mastery of Anxiety & Panic for Adolescents (MAP-A)
