Dialectical Behavior Therapy: A Visual Review
Developers: Steve McCandless, PsyD and Stephanie Johnston, LCSW
"Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT): A Visual Review" is a training on DBT program modules (individual therapy, group therapy, consultation team, and phone coaching) and skills (mindfulness, interpersonal effectiveness, distress tolerance, and emotion regulation).
The training consists of 2 videos (1.5 hours) and handouts. The videos were produced as narrated PowerPoint slide presentations and are geared towards mental health clinicians who want to learn more about DBT or enhance their current DBT practices. The training can also be viewed by clients or used during individual or group DBT therapy to provide psychoeducation.
Custom graphics demonstrate DBT skill concepts and are available as flash cards that can be provided to clients, posters that can be used for informational programs, and handouts that can be provided to clients to complement their DBT manuals.
The developers thank their graphic designer, Kevin Cates, and their DBT consultation team for all of their support and advice. They hope that this project can take some of the mystery out of DBT and make it more accessible to both clinicians and clients across the nation.
