Chats with Trainers: Addressing Invalidation Related to Minority Status

Description
The strategic use of validation is an important component of DBT. Validation from the therapist often provides needed corrective learning experiences about emotion, relationships, and effective behavior in the current environment. This discussion will focus on specific considerations for validation when implementing DBT with clients whose race or gender identity has led to unique experiences of invalidation. This discussion is aimed at helping therapists address the pervasive experience of invalidation that accompanies minority status.

Learning Objective
Participants will be able to identify specific considerations for validating clients who have experienced the invalidation as a result of their minority status.
