Applying DBT Principles in Therapy - September 23, 2016 in New Canaan, CT
Applying DBT Principles in Therapy
Charles R. Swenson, M.D.
Dr. Swenson graduated from Harvard College, Yale Medical School, and completed his Psychiatry Residency at Yale University. In 1988 he began to study, practice, and implement Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT). He established the first DBT program (outside of Seattle) on an inpatient unit at New York Hospital. He went on to practice, implement, teach, supervise, and write about DBT from 1989 to the present. After fourteen years at New York Hospital, Cornell Medical Center, he moved to Massachusetts and became Medical Director of the Dept. of Mental Health in Western Massachusetts and Associate Clinical Professor of Psychiatry at University of Massachusetts Medical School. From 1995 he developed and strengthened DBT programming for adults and adolescents throughout Western Massachusetts. At the same time, he provided training and consultation for DBT programs throughout the United States, Canada, and Europe. In 2000 Dr. Swenson co-founded the International Society for Improvement and Teaching of DBT (ISITDBT), which continues to thrive today. Dr. Swenson has written numerous articles and book chapters on the treatment of borderline personality disorder and the applications of DBT in various settings. His book, DBT Principles in Action: Acceptance, Change, and Dialectics, will be published by Guilford Press in the summer of 2016.
Friday, September 23, 2016 Silver Hill Hospital, Martin Center8:15am - 8:45am - Check-In and Continental Breakfast 9:00am - 4:00pm - Presentation
DBT was developed by Marsha Linehan, Ph.D. as a principle-based treatment with protocols. Most trained DBT therapists are familiar with the protocols: strategies, skills, agreements, assumptions, and protocols for structuring the treatment and responding to crises. Drawing from his recently published book DBT Principles in Action: Acceptance, Change and Dialectics, in this workshop Dr. Swenson will present DBT’s underlying principles, demonstrating how they can be applied in difficult moments in therapy. Videotaped segments of therapy, role plays, and clinical examples will be used to illustrate the teaching points. At the end of this program, participants will be able to:
|Describe and apply DBT’s five principles of behavioral change to change patients’ behaviors in sessions|
|Describe and apply DBT’s five principles of acceptance to reduce suffering, increase attachment, and facilitate problem solving|
|Describe and apply DBT’s five principles of dialectics to highlight opposition, move toward synthesis, and facilitate movement in therapy|
|Discuss how a sharp focus on DBT’s principles, while doing therapy, will naturally catalyze the use of DBT’s strategies|
All proceeds support NEA.BPD programs.
