Calming The Emotional Storm: Using DBT To Help Your Clients Manage Their Emotions

Sheri Van Dijk, MSW, RSW
presented by Leading Edge Seminars

Location: YWCA Toronto – Elm St Location (87 Elm Street, Toronto)
Time: 9:00 am to 4:40 pm
Fee: $430 + HST (before April 6, 2016); $450 + HST (after April 6, 2016)

Dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT) is a treatment originally designed to treat borderline personality disorder (BPD), but it is increasingly being used for many other disorders because of its effectiveness in treating clients unable to self-regulate emotion.

Following an introduction to DBT theory and an explanation as to how it differs from traditional therapy such as CBT, Sheri Van Dijk will discuss how DBT can be applied in work with clients facing a broad range of conditions (including depression, anxiety, and bipolar disorder) in which emotional regulation plays a key role.

Through lecture and experiential exercises, you will explore the four modules of skills taught in DBT (Core Mindfulness, Distress Tolerance, Emotion Regulation, and Interpersonal Effectiveness) and learn how to teach these skills to your clients. You will learn how to format DBT sessions to provide the structure your dysregulated clients need.

In addition, Sheri will introduce DBT strategies to help foster the therapeutic relationship, maximize therapeutic gains, and reduce the likelihood of therapist burnout.

Learning Objectives:

You will learn:

1. How to teach your clients DBT skills to help them get through crises without making the situation worse, to manage their emotions more effectively, and to develop and maintain healthier relationships

2. How to apply DBT skills to a range of problems and psychiatric illnesses

3. Dialectical strategies to address clients who are “stuck” in therapy, experiencing inertia or using unhealthy mechanisms of escape and avoidance, and how these strategies can lead to transformational healing

4. Skills to help you improve your own sense of efficacy in therapy, and reduce the likelihood of burnout
