Essential DBT Skills and Concepts for Every Therapist

While the comprehensive structure and training of formal Dialectical Behavioral Therapy does not appeal to all therapists, there are a number of skills and concepts embedded in DBT that are immensely valuable for most everyone.  DBT offers powerful concepts and strategies for moving clients towards long term goals and avoiding decisions based on emotion, addiction, spite, and other short term traps.  Come to conversation hour to gain clarity on these skills and exchange examples of how to use them with current clients.

Presenter: Debra Gill, PhD.

Hostess: Marisa Tucker
