Improving your DBT practice – getting the most out of an individual DBT session

Masterclass with Dr Sian Jeffery

Learn what typically goes wrong in DBT individual sessions, how to recognise & repair this, and then not repeat it. Come and learn from an experienced clinician who ‘walks-the-talk’.

This presentation will focus on the core components or ‘nuts and bolts’ of a Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) individual therapy session.

Learn how to structure a 50 minute individual session to assist multi-problem, often high risk, clients to get the most of therapy.

This presentation will include examples of what typically goes wrong in DBT individual sessions and how to repair these issues, as well as avoiding them in the future.

Strategies to engage clients and improve commitment and motivation will be modelled. A particular focus will be on strategies to increase the clients’ use of newly learnt DBT skills. We will also look at ways to evaluate your own DBT sessions and ensure fidelity to the treatment.
