DBT Individual Therapy Series

DBT Individual Therapy Series-With Elizabeth Plante, LMHC



DBT Individual Therapy is the modality that tailors the treatment to the person. This 6-part series provides comprehensive training and will progressively build your skills.

Participants will develop a full understanding of all aspects of DBT individual therapy including: developing a treatment plan based on a hierarchy of treatment targets, the use of diary cards, identifying and addressing therapy interfering behaviors (client and therapist), conducting chain analyses, and helping the person to generalize the skills learned in skills training.  Treatment strategies specific to DBT will be addressed.  Dialectics and balancing DBT strategies will also be discussed. 

Please note: The Individual Therapy Series assumes that participants have a sound understanding of the DBT skills. While the skills will be discussed, they will not be taught during this series. Those new to DBT are strongly encouraged to attend our DBT Skills Training Series or have similar training before registering for this series. Please contact Suzy Langevin at traininginstitute@openskycs.org or 508-755-0333 if you have questions about your readiness for this training.
