Dialectical Behavior Therapy: Assisting Our Clients in Regulating Their Emotions with speaker Beth Freimuth, MSW
About The Webinar:
Since it’s inception in the early 1990′s, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy has advanced significantly beyond it’s original clinical purpose of treating clients with Bi-Polar Disorder. DBT is now being considered an effective practice with a multitude of client populations including teens, clients with eating disorders, clients with a history of substance abuse, and many others. Based around a foundation of finding ways for clients to experience positive feelings towards themselves and their environments, DBT is focused specifically on rekindling a client’s feelings of hope, peace, and joy. During this webinar we will visit these core philosophies and best practices that can apply to your client approach on a regular basis, yet also understand the role of the therapist in a client’s success and how your interactions and attitude impact overall client outcome. Join Beth Freimuth as she presents these items and a real world example of how DBT is used in an inpatient residential treatment center at Michael’s House Treatment Center. Viewers of this webinar will learn answers to the following questions:
– Learn about the 4 DBT modules.
– Learn about the traditional DBT phases of treatment.
– Who is appropriate for DBT.
