Training Description

Treating clients with multiple disorders is already difficult. When clients challenge therapists with severely dysfunctional behaviors it can be extremely difficult, if not impossible, to continue with effective treatment. How should we respond when our clients refuse to talk, dissociate, verbally attack, talk so much we can barely comment, or storm out of the session? How do we manage our own emotional reactions to challenging in-session behaviors and respond effectively? What if there were an effective way of responding during these moments that would help decrease clients in-session dysfunctional behaviors, help clients more fully achieve their own goals, and allow us to feel less burned out, less annoyed, and more compassionate? This training is designed to address difficult moments in therapy by focusing on how to respond effectively to problematic and challenging in-session client behaviors.

Clinicians often complete their clinical training programs without receiving sufficient instruction in how to respond effectively to difficult in-session moments in therapy. For this reason, this two-day training is fitting for clinicians with a wide range of experience, from those who are relatively new, to well-seasoned veterans of the field. While the training will apply Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) principles, no prior training or formal study of DBT is required. This training is highly experiential: it combines lecture, video, modeling, and roleplay to illustrate and practice teaching points. You will have multiple opportunities for hands-on practice throughout the workshop.

Online Learning Included to Prepare for the Training

Registration for this training includes three months of access to Online Learning: Transforming Difficult Moments in Therapy, Effective Strategies with Dr. Marsha Linehan and Other DBT Experts.
We highly recommend that you complete this 10-hour online learning course before attending the two-day training. Due to the complexity of the concepts involved, your knowledge of these procedures before the training will allow you to gain the most out of this training opportunity.
