This training will outline the basics of Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), an evidence-based practice for emotion dysregulation that can help system involved youth become more mindful as they simultaneously work on improving interpersonal relationships, tolerating distress, and regulating intense emotions. This presentation will introduce practical applications of DBT with system involved youth through discussion, vignettes, video clips, and opportunities to practice. By examining the four modules of DBT (distress tolerance, emotional regulation, mindfulness, and interpersonal effectiveness), learn how to apply DBT concepts and principles to help improve outcomes for system involved youth. There will be an emphasis on practical skill building strategies derived from DBT which can be used in efforts to support system involved youth, rather than on building a full DBT program.
