Chats with Trainers: Incorporating Informal Exposure into Stage 1 DBT
This event has sold out! Please join the waiting list.
While learning to experience emotions without escaping is a key component of DBT, informal exposure is one of the least used strategies in DBT. Among 1270 individual DBT sessions coded for adherence, informal exposure was used in 54 sessions (4.3%) and was done below adherence 33.3% of the time. This offering will provide a general overview of the steps of informal exposure, and then utilize question-focused consultation to address and problem solve what gets in the way of participants’ use of informal exposure, as well as when and how best to incorporate informal exposure into therapy sessions.
As a result of this event, participants will be able to incorporate elements of informal exposure into individual DBT sessions.
