The Earlybird Deadline has now been extended to 26/06/2019
In this intensive 3-day workshop, DBT will be de-mystified and you will learn how to use this highly effective therapy to better treat your clients with problems managing emotions. Sheri’s unique workshops emphasize the flexibility of DBT and the benefits of using this therapy to treat disorders other than borderline personality disorder, including bipolar disorder, depression, anxiety disorders, eating disorders, and concurrent substance use; as well as other difficulties clients experience such as problems with self-esteem, anger, and grief.
Through lecture, experiential exercises, and case consultation you will explore the four modules of DBT: Core Mindfulness, Emotion Regulation, Distress Tolerance and Interpersonal Effectiveness. Explore tools and strategies to improve the therapeutic relationship and reduce feelings of ineffectiveness and burn-out. Viewing video-tapes of Sheri’s real-life sessions will provide you with a better understanding of the flow of individual sessions as well as how to balance accepting clients where they are with pushing them to make positive changes.
Bringing her years of clinical experience in both private practice and as part of a community hospital; and working with both individuals and DBT-informed groups, Sheri’s practical, inspiring, and highly praised workshop will give you evidence-based skills that can be immediately put into practice.
