COURSE DESCRIPTION

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is a highly efficacious treatment developed by Marsha M. Linehan, PhD for multi-diagnostic, severely disordered individuals with borderline personality disorder and other problems of emotion dysregulation. Recent studies have shown that DBT skills, when provided in the context of a comprehensive DBT program, are highly effective at reducing suicidal behaviors and improving treatment outcomes. DBT skills have been adapted for use for numerous different patient populations, including teens and individuals struggling with substance abuse and eating disorders. DBT has been used widely in a variety of settings, including the schools, juvenile justice facilities, prisons, inpatient settings, and residential treatment centers, in addition to outpatient settings.

In the making for nearly a decade, Linehan’s second edition skills training manual (2014) represents the culmination of decades of thinking and refinements by her and other DBT experts. No stone was left unturned. This two-day training will provide an overview of DBT skills with a special emphasis on the new DBT skills.

Topics covered will include:

  • Big, emerging research findings regarding the importance of skills, including what skills trainers/coaches need to most know to maximize outcomes.
  • Review of skills within each skills training module, including Mindfulness, Emotion Regulation, Interpersonal, and Distress Tolerance.
  • An emphasis on new DBT skills and new skills training instruction

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

Upon completion of this two-day workshop, participants will be able to:

  1. Describe the latest research findings with respect to the importance of DBT skills.
  2. Identify the key factor in improving outcomes with DBT skills based on the research to date.
  3. Define core mindfulness skills and States of Mind.
  4. List main subcategories within Distress Tolerance skills and name three skills within each category.
  5. Describe the model of emotions.
  6. Describe the important principles underlying the skill of opposite to emotion action for three primary emotions.
  7. Categorize and define the DEAR MAN GIVE FAST skills.
  8. Name and define four new DBT skills.

If you are in need of accommodations during your time in Forest Grover, McMenamins Grand Lodge is a memorable and comfortable place to stay. Just 25 miles west of Portland, you’ll enjoy local and seasonal pub fare in the two restaurants to fuel your next adventure.
Recharge in one of the 90 guestrooms, and you’ll soon be on the mend in the Doctor’s Office Bar, where pool tables beckon. Choose from distillery flights or signature cocktails; unwind with inventive beers and wines crafted from the very grapes and hops that characterize the Cascade region. Late night revelers may meet the Lavender Lady, whose spirit is said to dance through the halls. Spirits and historic figures are commemorated with fanciful art woven throughout—from pipes to headboards—and local historical photographs.
