Dialectical Behavior Therapy Foundational Training: Level 3 is organized by Behavioral Tech (BTECH) and will be held from Apr 08 - 12, 2019 at Silver Hill Hospital, New Canaan, Connecticut, United States of America. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 33 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits. Course Description: This five-day training is designed specifically for individual therapists or skills trainers who are members of an intensively trained DBT team, but have not completed Intensive training themselves. It is meant to assist teams that have hired new staff or experienced turnover by allowing newer team members to get trained in the standard content of DBT. Lecture, video, role-play and small group exercises will be used to teach DBT theory and strategies in depth. Participants agree to attend the entire five days of training, do their best to learn the material, and participate in a willing, committed manner. The training requires that participants work in an active DBT® program, participate in a consultation team, and will continue learning DBT with a mentor. Only people who have attended the full ten days of the Dialectical Behavior Therapy Intensive Training™ are able to serve as mentors and sponsor team members to a Foundational Training. Training Objectives: • Use DBT research data to engage stakeholders in DBT. • Adopt and practice a dialectical worldview in treatment. • Incorporate DBT assumptions about clients into treatment. • Explain the biosocial model of BPD/pervasive emotion dysregulation. • Apply DBT principles and strategies during DBT consultation team meetings • Structure treatment according to the target hierarchies for each modality (e.g., individual, skills training, phone). • Complete DBT pre-treatment tasks (e.g., identify client’s goals, orient to DBT, obtain commitments). • Assess long-term and acute risk for suicide. • Apply DBT suicide crisis protocols. • Implement the levels of validation in DBT. • Conduct a chain analysis of an episode of a target behavior. • Generate and evaluate solutions for specific problematic links from a chain analysis. • Describe the goals of the DBT skills modules. • Describe the DBT problem-solving strategies (skills training, cognitive modification, exposure, contingency management). • Implement DBT stylistic strategies (reciprocal and irreverent communication). • Implement DBT case management strategies (consultation-to-the-client and environmental intervention).
