Event Details

  An introduction to dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT) - 2 day Workshop in August

 Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) has demonstrated efficacy for people with emotion dysregulation difficulties. This 2 day workshop will provide an overview of the theory and principles of DBT, and how to practice DBT both within group and individual therapy. It will include key aspects of acceptance and change well, with a focus on validation and behaviour change principles.

 This workshop is suitable for mental health clinicians new to DBT as well as those with prior experience.

Presenters:  Zoe Gibbs & Tania Wittleton

 Zoe Gibbs is a Senior Clinical Psychologist at Spectrum where she divides her time between providing DBT treatment, developing services for young people with BPD, and providing secondary consultation and workforce development. She has recently joined Spectrum after spending the past few years working at the Maudsley hospital in London where she specialised in DBT for adolescents. Zoe has a longstanding interest in providing treatment to young people with BPD.

Tania Wittleton is an Occupational Therapist who, for twenty years, has worked with clients experiencing mental health issues across the lifespan and in numerous public health settings throughout Australia: from inpatient psychiatry units, to Prevention and Recovery Care Services, community case management and crisis work, alongside conducting project work with FaPMI and indigenous mental health. Tania currently works at Spectrum in their Dialectical Behaviour Clinic, for those with a Borderline Personality Disorder diagnosis and has co-developed the service’s Acceptance and Commitment Therapy program pilot. Sensory modulation as a therapeutic intervention is a key area of her practice expertise and Tania’s work ethos is foregrounded in empowering clients to experience their functional best and maximum quality of life.
