This on-demand professional training program on an Introduction to Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is presented by Michele Galietta, Ph.D. It is the first of seven programs in our Comprehensive DBT Certification Curriculum.
This program discusses the dialectical nature of DBT, i.e., the balance between change-based technology (via behavior therapy) with acceptance-based principles (via validation) in depth. In addition, the program describes the theoretical and empirical foundations for DBT. It reviews empirical findings, limitations of the current research, and the extent to which research findings are generalizable.
The program also examines the structure of DBT, treatment targets, and DBT’s philosophical assumptions. Lastly, using case examples, it will demonstrate how DBT treats or ameliorates mental health problems rather than just managing them.
