About This Program:
In 1993, Dr. Marsha Linehan introduced the world to Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) a comprehensive psychotherapy for treating chronically suicidal persons, particularly those with borderline personality disorder (BPD). With additional research, DBT proved to also be an effective treatment for substance abuse, eating disorders, and others. With continuously growing research, DBT is now considered to be an effective transdiagnostic treatment. This DBT skills training program focuses on treating emotion dysregulation, which refers to any of a number of problematic behaviors associated with regulating emotions and may apply to a diverse population of persons who may or may not be formally diagnosed with mental disorders.
In this comprehensive DBT skills training massive open online course, students learn to define, apply, and discuss 4 sets of life enhancement skills including core mindfulness skills, distress tolerance skills, emotion regulation skills, and interpersonal effectiveness skills. as described in the clinical manuals by Dr. Marsha M. Linehan: Cognitive-Behavioral Treatment of Borderline Personality Disorder, Skills Training Manual for Treating Borderline Personality Disorder, DBT Skills Training Manual Second Edition, and DBT Skills Training Handouts And Worksheets Second Edition.
