DBT: Beyond the Basics, with Sheri Van Dijk – March 5th & 6th, 2018, Barrie, Ontario
Many therapists have been introduced to core concepts of DBT through Sheri Van Dijk’s workshop “Calming the Emotional Storm”, as well as through her books. This “Beyond the Basics” advanced workshop is intended for clinicians with a basic understanding of DBT who want to develop more sophisticated and targeted interventions with your clients. In this workshop, Sheri will focus on how to use DBT strategies and skills to treat psychiatric illnesses other than borderline personality disorder, including bipolar disorder, depression, and anxiety, and issues such as anger, grief, and self-esteem. Sheri will also look at challenges encountered by new DBT therapists, ideas to help therapists deal with client “resistance”, and techniques to help clinicians manage escalating emotions during the session.
