To introduce participants to the theory, practice and applications of DBT

This workshop will give participants a taster of the fundamental theory and skills of DBT. It incorporates a brief introduction to basic DBT theory, but the main aim is to teach participants the DBT skills of working with problems of motivation and engagement and how to structure an intervention, as well as mindfulness, validation and behaviour management. The workshop is focused on practical clinical skills and involves demonstrations. All of the insights and skills taught will have relevance to participants’ normal practice.
