Through lecture, experiential exercises, and case consultation you will explore the four modules of DBT: Core Mindfulness, Emotion Regulation, Distress Tolerance and Interpersonal Effectiveness. Explore tools and strategies to improve the therapeutic relationship and reduce feelings of ineffectiveness and burn-out. Viewing video-tapes of Sheri’s real-life sessions will provide you with a better understanding of the flow of individual sessions as well as how to balance accepting clients where they are with pushing them to make positive changes.

Workshop Description Children diagnosed with Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD) can present a monumental challenge to therapists, teachers, parents and siblings. ODD and other conduct problems are the single greatest reasons for referrals to outpatient and inpatient mental health settings for children, accounting for at least half of all referrals. Complicating the success of therapeutic interventions is the high rate of comorbidity with anxiety and depressive disorders or ADHD. Current research also correlates a variety of cognitive skill deficits including executive function, emotional regulation, language processing, and social processing. These complicating comorbidities and correlations mean that ODD often requires multidisciplinary assessment and components of mental health care, case management, and educational intervention for students and clients to improve. This dynamic workshop will address a full range of behavioural disturbances, from mild to severe, in order to identify the therapeutic techniques that have proven effective. Participants will review and discuss strategies which can be immediately applied across a variety of settings including home, community, social groups, classrooms, or therapeutic. Participants will examine the intersection of ODD with a variety of issues such as trauma, ADD, learning disabilities, bipolar disorder, and depression and discuss how these affect and alter treatment decisions. Participants will leave this workshop with a much improved diagnostic and treatment approach to ODD and other behavioural disorders. Benefits to Attending • Beyond behaviour charts – Truly intervene with difficult behaviours • Disruptive Mood Dysregulation Disorder & important DSM-5 updates • The #1 reason families inadvertently fuel defiant behaviours • How educators and clinicians may be fuelling exactly what they are trying to stop • Why child/adolescent “terrorist behaviours” work • Technology and behaviours… video games, electronic bullying, learning styles • Case studies & experience
