DBT WITH REACTIVE OR HIGH CONFLICT COUPLES

From December 09, 2022 to December 10, 2022


This training will focus on relationship distress including dysregulated emotion, particularly anger, hurt feelings, sadness, embarrassment and worry. It will examine ways of providing brief DBT family interventions, specifically: 

1) how to think about couple transactions in a DBT way, with the role of emotion dysregulation as a central tenet alongside misunderstanding and invalidating responses; 

2) DBT couple interventions that organize and manage reactive or dysregulated partners in the session, 

3) how to help partners learn emotion management and relationship skills that reduce aversive conflict, increase collaboration and build closeness and connection. 

This approach has been shown to improve couple relationships in general, helping partners become less destructive, and more peaceful and loving.
