Radically Open Dialectical Behavior Therapy highlighted in CCE offerings

January 10, 2017

Radically Open Dialectical Behavior Therapy (RO-DBT) is an evidence-based, transdiagnostic treatment for patients who suffer from emotional and behavioral over-control. RO-DBT has been researched over the past 20 years for patients with chronic depression or Anorexia Nervosa. Research results suggest that it is effective in these, and other, more complex groups that can be difficult to treat, such as Autism Spectrum Disorders and Obsessive Compulsive Personality Disorder. Our spring programming offers two opportunities to learn more about this transdiagnostic treatment strategy.

Saturday, February 25 - Columbia River Eating Disorder Network Conference

Keynote Speaker: Thomas Lynch, PhD, founder and developer of RO-DBT. Lynch will offer a two-part keynote presentation, as well as a Q&A session with attendees.

Friday, March 17 - Introduction to Radically-Open Dialectical Behavior Therapy

This introductory workshop for counselors and therapists will provide clinicians with the theoretical foundations underlying this form of DBT, as well as a few key skills to engage with clients.
