DBT Interpersonal Effectiveness Skills Workshop

About the Course:

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is a treatment originally created to treat borderline personality disorder (BPD). In recent years it has been increasingly used to treat many other disorders because of its usefulness in treating clients who struggle to manage emotions. This webinar, led by Sheri Van Dijk, will show this treatment can be used in your work with clients facing a broad range of conditions such as depression, anxiety, and bipolar disorder, in which emotion dysregulation plays a key role; and strategies to teach these skills to your clients. Sheri is known for her humor and down-to-earth style, and her ability to de-mystify DBT, making it less intimidating and more user-friendly for clinicians to learn and incorporate into their practice. This webinar will provide an overview of the DBT Interpersonal Effectiveness Skills. Participants will learn about these skills, looking at ways to help clients improve their ability to communicate and find a healthier balance in their relationships and in their lives more generally.

This course is based on the recorded webinar, DBT Interpersonal Effectiveness Skills Workshop created by Sheri Van Dijk, MSW, RS in 2022.
