DBT: Interventions & Treatments for your Clients

Presenter: Josh Smith, LMSW, BCD

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is an evidence-based treatment, initially developed by Marsha Linehan, PhD of the University of Washington. DBT is designed to empower clients to develop and practice four primary core skills: mindfulness, distress tolerance, emotional regulation, and interpersonal effectiveness. This seminar will explore the theoretical basis for this approach, teach specific DBT skills and tips to effectively work with challenging clients. Download workshop flier PDF
