DBT Intensive: Going Beyond The Basics

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

Location: Multi-faith Centre/Koffler House (569 Spadina Avenue, Toronto)
Time: 9:00 am to 4:40 pm
Fee: $430 + HST (before April 6, 2016); $450 + HST (after April 6, 2016)

Many therapists have been introduced to core concepts of DBT through Sheri Van Dijk’s workshop “Calming the Emotional Storm”, and/or her books. This “Beyond the Basics” intensive workshop is intended for a smaller group of clinicians with a basic understanding of DBT who want to develop increasingly sophisticated and targeted interventions by —

Delving further into treatment planning from a DBT perspective and learning how to decide which DBT interventions will best suit a client’s needs
Exploring how to teach the DBT skills to clients in relation to Axis I diagnoses such as depression, anxiety disorders, and bipolar disorder
Discussing what to do when interventions don’t seem to be moving the client forward
Taking a closer look at the role of the DBT consultation team
Sheri Van Dijk will focus on how to use DBT strategies and skills to treat psychiatric illnesses other than borderline personality disorder, including bipolar disorder, depression, and anxiety, and issues such as anger and self-esteem. Participants are asked to bring case examples and submit specific issues prior to the workshop. The workshop will also cover challenges encountered by new DBT therapists, client “resistance”, and techniques to help clinicians manage emotions during the session.

This experiential and collaborative training will help expand your knowledge of DBT strategies and skills through lecture, role-play, video analysis of clients, and practical exercises.

Learning Objectives:

You will learn —

• How to apply the DBT skills to your own personal and professional life, and how the skills will help to reduce feelings of ineffectiveness and burnout with clients
• To enhance your skills in validating and being nonjudgemental in order to help your clients learn to tolerate their emotional experiences and move forward
• About a behaviour theory perspective to help you analyze what might be keeping clients stuck
• More dialectical strategies to help clients move forward in treatment, and to elicit commitment to working on goals
• How to work as part of a DBT consultation team
