This course, which is the most advanced of the three-part series, is designed to introduce participants to structuring Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT). It introduces participants to in-session strategies to solve problems and create solutions to better move towards their life worth living. Participants learn to utilize worksheets, handouts, diary cards, etc. in individual sessions. The workshop seeks to provide an immersive and ‘hands-on’ experience. To this end, participants will observe role-plays/demonstrations and engaging in ‘hands-on’ practice. Throughout the course, the emphasis is placed on the importance of comprehensive, culturally-sensitive, individualized assessment, and intervention.
