Event description

Description

One of the most important developments in Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) over the past decade is the adaptation of DBT for adolescents with multiple problems who are at high risk for suicidal and self-injurious behavior. DBT for adolescents was developed by Drs. Alec Miller, Jill Rathus, and Marsha Linehan to address the complex and unique challenges that arise during treatment with these adolescents and their families.

In this unique opportunity, which will be the only workshop offered by Dr Rathus in Australia, exclusive to The Northern Health Network and headspace Edinburgh North, participants will learn about DBT skills training with teens and their families.

Dr Rathus will provide a step by step overview of DBT applied to adolescents, an overview of the adaptations made to standard DBT to address the needs of adolescents and their families, including a particular focus on multi-family skills training classes and the latest DBT skills for adolescents and their caregivers. Strategies for bringing DBT principles to skills training, engaging teens and caregivers, and group management will be provided. Ample demonstrations, experiential exercises, and role plays will help illustrate workshop content.

Upon completion of this training, participants will be able to:

  • Have a clear understanding of DBT as developed specifically for adolescent populations
  • Describe the adaptations made to standard DBT to address the needs of adolescents and their families. ­
  • Learn how to teach DBT skills to teens and their caregivers. ­
  • Become familiar with the latest updates to DBT skills for teens and parents. ­
  • Learn how to manage multi-family group using DBT strategies.
