ABOUT THE WORKSHOP

Problems with severe and chronic emotion dysregulation, including suicidality, self-harm, and other problems related to borderline personality disorder almost always occur within an interpersonal family context. Moreover, invalidating social and family responses are at the core of the DBT transactional model for the development and maintenance of these problems. DBT family interventions have been shown to augment outcomes in DBT. Not every setting or every individual case, however, has the opportunity for parents, partners and other loved ones to learn DBT family skills and participate in ongoing DBT family therapy.

This training will first focus on how to use the transactional model to conceptualize client-family transactions. It will them address ways to provide brief DBT family interventions, specifically:

  1. How to target parents, partners and others in the context of the DBT treatment target hierarchy;
  2. How to conduct a quick (often partial) “double chain” to complement individual chain and solution analysis;
  3. What key skills can be employed in these situations as solutions; and
  4. How to conduct and manage brief DBT family sessions in crisis and other situations.

Teaching, demonstrations, role plays, and experiential exercises will be used throughout the training. Examples will include all types of family constellations: teens/adults with their parents, couples, and other dyads. Participants are encouraged to bring cases for consultation.

  1. Describe how emotion vulnerability and invalidation transact to create emotion dysregulation in families
  2. Build a treatment target hierarchy relevant to parents and partners in a crisis situation
  3. Conduct a “double chain” to understand how family transactions evolve and contribute to problem behaviors and to identify points of intervention
  4. Utilize the double chain to weave in new skills as solutions
  5. Teach both accurate expression and validating responses to family members (and how they are connected)

TARGET AUDIENCE

All health care professionals seeking to gain knowledge of and refine their skills in delivering family interventions.
