SOS For Emotions: Dialectical Behavior Therapy (Virtual)

April 8, 2023

Saturday, April 8, 2023, 9:00am-10:30am (PT)

Hosted by the National Association of Social Workers (NASW) New York State Chapter. Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) is a modified type of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), and its main goals are to teach people how to live in the moment, develop healthy ways to cope with stress, regulate their emotions, and improve their relationships with others. DBT was originally intended to treat borderline personality disorder (BPD), but it has been adapted to treat other mental health conditions. It can help people who have difficulty with emotional regulation or are exhibiting self-destructive behaviors (such as eating disorders and substance use disorders). DBT has evolved to become an evidence-based psychotherapy approach that is used to treat many conditions. 


This course will review DBT theory and research to provide a basic framework for understanding the treatment of problems with DBT. This course will offer a practical skills approach for a variety of settings, which include group therapy, individual therapy, and phone coaching. In addition, this course will describe DBT tools for a variety of settings and populations, including skills such as ways to provide guidance on coping with difficult situations and ways of coaching clients on developing behavioral skills.


After the completion of this webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Describe emotional regulation within the DBT model
  • Identify the 4 key DBT skill modules 
  • Explain the DBT model of mindfulness, including the how/what and wise mind
  • Describe ways to assist clients with distress tolerance and emotional regulation for crisis management
  • Describe the application of interpersonal skill modules for non-crisis periods


This workshop is approved for 3.0 CEUs.

Cost: $0-$75. Registration and more information here
