Introduction to Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT): Helping Persons Served Build a Life Worth Living

Join Illume The Behavioral Health Center of Excellence on Tuesday, July 26th, from 8:30a.m.-4:00p.m. (Central)

For many adults living with complex diagnoses, regulating emotions can feel like an insurmountable task. Many are left feeling hopeless and that their lives are not worth living.  Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is a comprehensive treatment that addresses pervasive emotional dysregulation as well as suicidal behaviors and non-suicidal self-injury. Initially developed for individuals with Borderline Personality Disorder, research shows that DBT is effective for a broad range of individuals struggling with emotion dysregulation.

This training will provide an overview of the foundational theories of DBT, its structure, and its treatment targets.  It will describe the four modes of treatment and take a closer look at specific skills modules.  Providers will learn why DBT is not suicide prevention, but rather it is a treatment designed to help the people they serve build a life worth living. Behavioral Health professionals who attend may apply for up to 6 CEUs. This event will be open to the community with limited spots available, capping at 25 total sign ups.

 

Please see our in-person CEU Guidelines 

DBT Training will be an in-person event hosted by Illume: The Behavioral Health Center of Excellence from 8:30am-4:00pm on July 26, 2022. This community event has a cost of $80.
