Professional Development: Three-Day DBT Skills Workshop - Vancouver

Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to offer another Three-Day DBT Skills Workshop

Dates: From July 12th - 14th, 2017 at UBC Robson Square, downtown Vancouver.

The skills taught in Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) contain an array of strategies designed to help people struggling in life lead happier and more productive lives. The most widely researched treatment for problems characteristic of Borderline Personality Disorder (including recurrent suicidal and self-harming behaviours), DBT teaches a variety of concrete skills for helping people be more mindful, better tolerate distress, improve interpersonal relationships, and effectively manage emotions.

These skills are increasingly being used to assist people also struggling with a variety of other mental health problems, including recurrent suicidal and self-harming behaviours, substance abuse, eating disorders, and treatment resistant depression.

This special 3 day training will cover the majority of the skills taught in DBT skills groups and can be used with clients both individually and in group settings. Using a variety of teaching strategies, including didactics, video and audio clips, role-plays, and experiential exercises, this workshop will provide mental health professionals with an assortment of skills they can use in better assisting their clients.
