Radically Open Dialectical Behavior Therapy (RO-DBT) is an empirically validated, transtheoretical treatment modality founded by Thomas Lynch PhD to address issues related to overcontrol (rigidity, perfectionism, aloof interpersonal style, loneliness, social anxiety) and clinical presentations such as OCPD, anorexia nervosa, depression, and anxiety. RO-DBT focuses on goals such as mindfulness, interpersonal effectiveness, openness, and improved flexibility. Additionally, RO DBT concepts and skills can be utilized by clinicians for their own growth and development (especially those who identify as overcontrolled), and to understand how their own temperaments impact their ability to be present with themselves and their clients.
Workshop participants will complete a self-assessment to understand their level of overcontrolled coping, learn the basic components of RO-DBT including identifying and shifting social signaling and the Neuroregulatory Model of Emotions, and learn several RO-DBT skills designed to help participants activate social safety and feel more calm. This workshop will use interactive components such as role plays and skill practicing. An additional focus will be on clinical supervisors being able to help their graduate trainees, who may benefit from learning more about their own overcontrolled coping style, and clinical supervisors will be taught RO-DBT concepts and skills designed to help trainees in managing their own anxiety and perfectionistic tendencies around their clinical work.
After attending this ntroductory-level presentation, participants will be able to:
