POETIC 2nd Annual Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) Skills Training
October 5, 2019 @ 8:30 am - 5:00 pm
POETIC is hosting a One Day Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) Skills Training focused on substance use
Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) is a cognitive behavioral treatment that helps individuals learn strategies to live a life worth living. The components of DBT are mindfulness, emotion regulation, distress tolerance, and interpersonal effectiveness. While DBT was originally developed for those suffering from chronic suicidal ideation diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder, research has shown DBT is effective for treating disorders such as substance dependence, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, and eating disorders.
The one-day training will focus on the components of DBT skills training that are most helpful for those suffering from substance use disorders.
