Course Description: Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) encourages clients to use skills instead of (or in addition to) pills, to effectively manage their emotions, behaviors, and interpersonal interactions. This 4-session webinar course will provide a comprehensive review of the four DBT skills modules, Mindfulness, Distress Tolerance, Interpersonal Effectiveness and Emotion Regulation and instruction regarding how they can be incorporated into a psychotherapy treatment for Bulimia Nervosa, Binge Eating Disorder, and Anorexia Nervosa. Participants will learn the basic DBT skills, particularly those most relevant to the treatment of eating disorders, as well as interventions for successfully incorporating skills training into an ongoing psychotherapy treatment and for teaching skills to clients.
