Brief DBT Family Interventions in a Crisis and Beyond
This training will focus first on how to use the transactional model to conceptualize client-family transactions, and then on how to provide brief DBT family interventions, specifically: 1) how to target parents, partners and others in the context of the DBT treatment target hierarchy; 2) how to conduct a quick (often partial) “double chain” to complement individual chain and solution analysis; 3) key skills that can be employed in these situations as solutions; and 4) how to conduct and manage brief DBT family sessions in crisis and other situations as needed. Teaching, demonstrations, role plays, and experiential exercises will be used throughout the training. Examples will include all types of family constellations: teens and adults with their parents, couples, and other dyads. You are welcome to bring your cases for consultation.
