Dialectical Behavior Therapy skills have been studied empirically since the therapy was created. While initially created to treat those with Borderline Personality Disorder, these skills have been found to be efficacious with a variety of populations that practitioners encounter in their work. Learning the skills will enhance one’s treatment repertoire and help clients achieve lives worth living. This training will introduce participants to the types of skills DBT teaches, the purpose of each category and some teaching techniques to facilitate getting clients to utilize these in their lives.

At the completion of this activity, participants will be able to:

  • Identify the populations for which DBT skills are appropriate.
  • Identify the types of skills used in Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) and how to teach them.
  • Recognize the basic structure and different schedules to have an effective DBT skills training group.
