Charles Swenson, M.D., will teach participants how a dialectical world-view informs specific DBT treatment strategies. This workshop will clarify what is meant by "dialectical" in DBT using lecture, case examples, and role-playing demonstrations. Participants will be taught how to utilize three standard DBT strategies dialectically: prioritizing treatment targets, getting commitment to the treatment, and validating the client. This training is appropriate for clinicians with a range of experience in DBT and CBT. Dr. Swenson is a widely published author on DBT, and an internationally recognized DBT trainer and expert in DBT implementation.
