Robyn Lam MA, RP, CCC
presented by SickKids CCMH Learning Institute

April 22, 23, 29 and 30, 2021 | 9 a.m. to noon

DBT skills are especially relevant now for adolescents struggling to manage their emotions while facing multiple changes to their routines and way of life, given the limitations of the pandemic. The core skills and concepts of DBT for adolescents will be briefly covered, the focus primarily will be on how to utilize these skills and concepts to address ambivalence and encourage integration of DBT skills in the youth’s daily life.

This training is suitable for:

Mental Health Professional: psychotherapists, counsellors, psychologists, social workers

Medical Professionals: nurses, psychiatrists, pediatricians, family doctors

Direct Service Workers: drop in workers, shelter and hostel workers, child and youth workers, youth justice workers

Client age category: For professionals working with clients age 12 to adulthood

Level of training: Introductory/intermediate

Description: DBT is a well-researched approach to work with emotion- regulation issues. Although originally developed for adults, it has been adapted over the years to be used with adolescents, both individually and in skills groups. The practice of DBT with adolescents requires some necessary adjustments to take into consideration their developmental stage and needs. This training is for professionals who would like to use DBT in working with adolescents on regulating emotions and managing distress. We will briefly cover the core skills and concepts of DBT for adolescents, and focus primarily on how to utilize them to address ambivalence and encourage integration of DBT skills in the youth's daily life.

Learning objectives:

• Summarize the core DBT principles and skills as applied to adolescents
• Facilitate the psychoeducation of DBT principles and skills when working with adolescents
• Facilitate turning DBT philosophy and skills into 'life practice' for adolescents
• Use DBT principles and skills to address ambivalence that adolescents may show
