CCED and John Carroll University are hosting, “Dialectical Behavior Therapy Skills Training,” on Friday, May 17, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at JCU’s Lombardo Student Center Conference Room. Join us as we instruct professionals, students, parents and community members alike on how to use creativity to teach DBT skills in therapy.
Prior to the workshop, CCED is hosting a breakfast Eat and Greet at 8 a.m. to mingle with participants, answer questions, and offer resources on DBT skills and eating disorders. Be sure to stop by for a cup of Joe!
CCED clinical psychologist and JCU professor Denise Ben-Porath, PhD, will present in this workshop creative techniques, such as role play, video and experiential exercises, as a way to teach DBT skills. Participants will learn how to structure a DBT group, including providing guidelines to the group and managing group interfering behaviors.
“Change-based” skills, interpersonal effectiveness and emotion regulation will be presented in the morning session. Interpersonal effectiveness skills teach clients how to assert themselves appropriately in interpersonal interactions and emotion regulation skills teach clients how to regulate intense emotions.
In the afternoon, “acceptance-based” skills, mindfulness and distress tolerance will be presented. Distress tolerance skills teach clients how to tolerate a situation without making it worse. Mindfulness skills teach clients how to cognitively defuse from negative thoughts, emotions, and beliefs.
