Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is a cognitive-behavioral therapy that has amassed empirical support for a range of psychological problems in clinical and nonclinical populations. This course introduces the origins and theoretical underpinnings of DBT. You will learn about the structure and processes involved in conducting DBT as well as the evidence supporting this approach. You will also learn the strategies DBT facilitators use to engage people, and you will be guided through the key elements of the DBT skill-based treatment modules. This course is designed to help you avoid common pitfalls in dealing with individuals who have difficulties regulating emotions. Using a blend of theory and research-based information with detailed case studies, this course will help you utilize the basic principles and treatment components of DBT. In this course you will learn how to conceptualize cases within a DBT framework, how to optimize treatment through the DBT structure, and how to apply advanced techniques for common challenges. This course assumes the learner has foundational knowledge of DBT theory and concepts, and it presents advanced concepts related to the theory and treatment components of DBT as it is used with specific populations and in various settings.
