INTRODUCTION TO RADICALLY OPEN DIALECTICAL BEHAVIOR THERAPY
First Italian Introductory Training – with THOMAS LYNCH
WHAT IS RO DBT:
Radically Open Dialectical Behavior Therapy (RO DBT) is an evidence-based treatment for hypercontrol problems. Self-control, the ability to inhibit competing urges, impulses, or behaviors is highly valued by most societies. However, excessive self-control has been linked to social isolation, aloof interpersonal functioning, maladaptive perfectionism, constricted emotional expressions, and difficult-to-treat mental health problems, such as anorexia nervosa, obsessive compulsive personality disorder and refractory depression.The aim of this workshop is to introduce clinicians to the theoretical foundations and new skills underlying Radically Open-Dialectical Behavior Therapy (RO DBT) for disorders of overcontrol.
Upon completion of this one-day training, participants will be able to:
- Explain a new biosocial theory for Over-Control
- Describe the RO DBT treatment structure
- Describe new RO DBT treatment strategies designed to enhance willingness for self-inquiry and flexible responding
- Describe the RO DBT treatment hierarchy
- Describe a novel treatment mechanism positing open expression = trust = social connectedness
- List examples of strategies designed to improve pro-social cooperative signaling via activation of the parasympathetic nervous system’s social-safety system
