Description

The overarching purpose of this training is to discuss issues related to the assessment and treatment of adults with co-occurring personality disorders and substance use disorders (SUDs). Individuals with this complex and multi-diagnostic presentation often meet diagnostic criteria for borderline personality disorder (BPD), and can be extraordinarily difficult to treat given the range of treatment targets and the emotional, interpersonal, cognitive and behavioral problems that may occur during sessions. This training will focus on one treatment, Dialectical Behavior Therapy for Substance Abuse Disorders (DBT-SUD), as a comprehensive approach to treating individuals with BPD and co-occurring SUDs. The theory, philosophy, structure, process and modes of DBT-SUD will be introduced. To facilitate learning, the training will include experiential exercises designed to help highlight the specifics of DBT-SUD skills, including mindfulness, emotional regulation, distress tolerance and interpersonal effectiveness skills. This is not a comprehensive and intensive DBT-SUD training but is instead a general introduction to this treatment approach.
