Emotion dysregulation, commonly experienced in early recovery, often interferes with a client's ability to effectively participate in therapeutic programming. Integrating Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) with the 12 Steps provides clients with skills to manage the symptoms of emotion dysregulation.
This webinar will provide participants with the opportunity to learn how instructing clients in using the skills of mindfulness, distress tolerance and interpersonal effectiveness helps them successfully manage emotion dysregulation and allows clients to more effectively participate in therapeutic programming.
This innovative curriculum integrates the evidence-based models of DBT and 12 Step Facilitation. Separately, these approaches have been demonstrated to be effective in managing emotion dysregulation. Together, aspects of each model are strengthened and assist clients in creating balanced thoughts, behaviors and actions.
