Chats with Trainers: Managing Serious TIBs in DBT Skills Training
A number of factors can make it difficult to define problematic behavior in skills training group as either therapy destroying or therapy interfering behavior (TIB). This complicates treatment planning and can greatly reduce the effectiveness of group. Participants will be invited to submit their own quandaries related to this issue before and during the discussion. A very brief overview of defining criteria and general approaches to therapy destroying and therapy interfering behavior will be given. Discussion will include: confounds in determining which type of behavior is being exhibited in group; approaches to defining tough-call behaviors; and an array of treatment planning options.
As a result of this event participants will be able to describe strategies for effectively managing serious therapy interfering behaviors in skills training classes.
