Chats with Trainers: Dialectical Dilemmas & DBT Case Formulation, Part 2
This is a follow up to the previous discussion that occurred on Friday, April 24. In that discussion we set the stage for conceptualizations of how dialectical dilemmas manifest in the lives of people with BPD, and how to use these to develop hypotheses about the experiences of patients. The previous discussion provided examples related to the poles of emotional vulnerability and self-invalidation and active passivity and apparent competence. This discussion will pick up with additional questions from the first discussion and focus on the remaining pole of unrelenting crises and inhibited grieving. As in the previous discussion, w
e will attempt to use our understanding of the dialectical dilemmas to generate hypotheses and incorporate these into DBT case formulations, while keeping in mind the principles of behavioral science and staying as close as possible to observable behaviors in defining problems.
As a result of this event participants will be able to incorporate hypotheses to include in DBT case formulation based on dialectical dilemmas experienced by persons with borderline personality disorder.
