PDS1565: Dialectical Behavioral Therapy: Working with Substance Use Disorders
January 16, 2020, 9:00 am - 4:00 pm$90
Research has demonstrated the effectiveness of Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) addressing a variety of presenting problems that are related to emotion dysregulation. There have been adaptations made to the original model that was designed to treat borderline personality disorder to address the treatment of co-occurring substance use disorders. This workshop will review the foundations of DBT such as the biosocial theory, dialectical abstinence, mindfulness, and the importance of balancing acceptance and change techniques. It will focus on strategies for using DBT with substance use disorders.
