"In this training video, DBT experts Drs. Shelley McMain and Carmen Wiebe demonstrate an invaluable array of key interventions from Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT). McMain and Wiebe each work with Ashley, a young woman with a history of self-harm and interpersonal tensions. In a series of brief didactic interviews alongside clinical vignettes, they illustrate the effective use of validation, commitment strategies, problem solving, and distress tolerance skills training. You'll discover the three core tenets of DBT: learning theory, Zen philosophy, and dialectics. You'll also learn about the significance of an invalidating early environment on a client's current presentation, and find eight DBT assumptions about clients that can help you stay compassionate. By watching this video, you will understand the theoretical underpinnings of DBT and its application to emotional dysregulation; learn how to communicate your understanding of what makes sense about a client's experience (i.e., validation); and discover ways to incorporate commitment strategies, problem-solving tools, and distress tolerance skills into your client work. Intended for students and practitioners in clinical psychology, counseling, social work, and related health professions." - Supplied by publisher.
