Applications of Dialectical Behavior Therapy to the Treatment of Dissociative Behavior and Other Complex Trauma Related Problems

Access Activity

Overview / Abstract:

Individuals who have experienced multiple and/or severe traumatic experiences during development often present with a wide range of problems related to severe emotion dysregulation. The complexity and heterogeneity of this population pose unique challenges for clinicians, as existing protocol treatments for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) are often insufficient or existing problems may interfere with the delivery of these treatments (e.g., dissociative or suicidal behavior). Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) is based on empirically supported principles (as opposed to protocols) that lead to individualized case formulations and treatment plans to treat the interpersonal, emotional, and behavioral difficulties of individuals with severe emotion dysregulation. This workshop will overview the principles of DBT, proceduresfor developing individualized case formulations and determining empirically-based interventions (based on behavioral analyses), and key DBT interventions, including DBT skills. Applications to the treatment of dissociative behavior and other complex trauma-related problems will be emphasized. Considerations for determining whether to initiate empirically-based (protocol) treatments for PTSD in this population will be discussed.
