Intended Audience & Aims: This 3 hour live webinar gives mental health practitioners who are not yet familiar with RO DBT and overview of what type of treatment RO DBT is. The aim is for clinicians to be able to make a more informed decision after attending this webinar on whether or not RO DBT is suitable for their clients and whether they want to learn how to practice RO DBT.
Brief summary of RO DBT: Radically Open Dialectical Behavior Therapy (RO DBT) is a treatment for patients who suffer from emotional and behavioral over-control. Some clients lack emotional control and need interventions designed to enhance emotional and behavioral control; others, for whom RO DBT is designed, require interventions designed to relax rigid or inflexible control. RO DBT has been researched over the past 25 years for patients with chronic depression or anorexia nervosa. Research results suggest that it is effective in these, and other, hard-to-treat groups such as Autism Spectrum Disorders and Obsessive Compulsive Personality Disorder.
Please note: This is a 3 hour introductory training – the comprehensive implementation trainings comprise approximately 40-50 hours of blended learning (a combination of online and in person training) or 70 hours of intensive in person training offered as 2 x 5 full day trainings, with approximately 6 months between each 5 days.
