Calming the Emotional Storm: Using DBT to Treat Emotion Dysregulation

 September 24 &  25, 2020
Time: 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM 
Location: 223 Main St., Saint-Paul University, Ottawa, Ontario, K1S 1C4
Facilitator:  Sheri Van Dijk, MSW, RSW

Following an introduction to DBT theory and how this treatment differs from traditional cognitive behavior therapy, leading expert Sheri Van Dijk will discuss how DBT can be applied to working with clients facing this broad range of conditions.

Through lecture and experiential exercises, you’ll explore the four modules of DBT skills (Core Mindfulness, Distress Tolerance, Emotion Regulation, and Interpersonal Effectiveness) and learn how to teach these skills to your clients. You will learn how to format DBT sessions to provide the structure your dysregulated clients need. In addition, Sheri will introduce DBT strategies to help foster the therapeutic relationship, maximize therapeutic gains, and reduce the likelihood of therapist burnout.
