DBT Principles and their Application to Treating Couples and Families
Dialectical Behavior Therapy is known for its use of dialectics and its focus on emotion regulation, which makes it highly applicable in working with dysregulated, high conflict couples and families. Dr. Foertsch will demonstrate basics of DBT including the parent theories of behaviorism, zen and dialectics, targets, modes, and strategies of therapy and DBT skills. The application of this model to couples and families, especially relying on Fruzzetti’s model outlined in The High Conflict Couple, will be explained. Clinical demonstrations and role play will be emphasized throughout the day.
