Description

Are you a clinician looking for guidance on the management of common and frustrating behaviors that interfere with therapeutic progress across a wide range of adult outpatients and therapeutic approaches? Some of these therapy-interfering behaviors (TIBs) include therapy no-shows, drop-outs, angry behavior toward the therapist, suicidal threats, homework non-compliance, and behaviors on the part of the therapist that might interfere with therapeutic progress. This training will help clinicians better manage TIBs by using principles and strategies from Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT; Linehan, 1993). DBT is an evidence-based cognitive behavioral therapy for borderline personality disorder (BPD) that emphasizes therapists using strategies to target and reduce TIBs. Because DBT is a cognitive behavioral therapy, strategies to manage TIBs in DBT are consistent with and can fit well within the general framework of other cognitive-behavioral therapies. In addition, strategies within DBT used to reduce TIBs may be applied across a variety of clinical problems, not only to individuals meeting diagnostic criteria for BPD. In this training attendees will learn how to use approaches from DBT to help reduce TIBs, without needing to be a DBT therapist, providing comprehensive DBT, or treating someone with BPD. Using didactics and experiential learning, this training will be designed to increase clinician skill and confidence responding to TIBs across a wide array of adults in outpatient settings, in order to enhance treatment outcomes.
