The School of Social Work in Falk College, an approved provider of continuing education for LMSWs and LCSWs in New York State, will provide DBT: Not Just for Our Clients- A Discussion About Self-Care workshop. Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) has been proven to be very effective with an array of mental health and substance use related disorders, but it can also assist clinicians to become more self-aware and mindful. DBT not only improves the practice of the clinician, but enhances relationships by making the clinician a better colleague, supervisor, friend, and parent. Expand on your knowledge of DBT and learn how to implement some of these exercises into your personal and professional life.

Participant learning objectives:

  • Gain a better understanding of the DBT model
  • Learn and practice a skill from each of the four modules
  • Learn how to implement these skills into their own clinical practice and personal life
  • Be connected to additional resources for further DBT trainings/information

Date: January 18, 2019
