We are thrilled to host Dr. Alan E. Fruzzetti, clinical psychologist, professor, and researcher in the field of Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT). Dr. Fruzzetti will provide a two-day online training, “Brief DBT Family Interventions in a Crisis and Beyond”.
Dates: Friday and Saturday, December 10 and 11, 2021
Time: 11am – 4pm (Eastern Time)
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:
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.
All health care professionals seeking to gain knowledge of and refine their skills in delivering family interventions.
This two-day webinar will be recorded. Recordings will be shared with all registrants within 10 days of the webinar taking place. These will be available for 60 days once the recordings are released.
