Dialectical Behavior Therapy Online Text-based Home Course (3 CE)
Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), developed by Marsha Linehan, addresses this particular treatment challenge by focusing on psychosocial skills training and other various strategic interventions using both individual and group treatment. DBT focuses on changing the typical behaviors of the Borderline client such as suicidal and parasuicidal actions, behaviors that interfere with therapy, and behaviors that reduce the quality of one's life. DBT also focuses on teaching the Borderline how to cope with post-traumatic stress responses and improving distress tolerance skills and emotional modulation skills. Studies by Linehan show that DBT is highly effective and reduces the amount of self-injury and crises among BPD clients.
This course is designed for therapists seeking Continuing Education credits and for those candidates who are studying for licensure. The course provides a host of DBT treatment strategies that can readily be employed with those clients with BPD.
