Note: This presentation requires a passcode to enter the room.  The passcode is: 12345.

Aims: This 3 hour live webinar gives mental health practitioners (e.g. psychology, psychiatry, social work, mental health nursing) who are not yet familiar with RO DBT and overview of what type of treatment RO DBT is. The aim is for clinicians to be able to make a more informed decision after attending this webinar on whether or not RO DBT is suitable for their clients and whether they want to learn how to practice RO DBT.

Content Level: this live webinar is at the introductory/beginner level: no previous knowledge of RO DBT is required.

Target Audience: Apart from a professional qualification in a mental health or related field (e.g. psychology, psychiatry, social work, mental health nursing) there are no further prerequisites for the course. Previous training in standard DBT is not a requirement.

Brief summary of RO DBT: Radically Open Dialectical Behavior Therapy (RO DBT) is a treatment for patients who suffer from emotional and behavioral over-control. Some clients lack emotional control and need interventions designed to enhance emotional and behavioral control; others, for whom RO DBT is designed, require interventions designed to relax rigid or inflexible control. RO DBT has been researched over the past 25 years for patients with chronic depression, chronic anxiety or anorexia nervosa. Research results suggest that it is effective in these, and other, hard-to-treat groups such as Autism Spectrum Disorders and Obsessive Compulsive Personality Disorder.

Learning Objectives. After attending this webinar, you will be able to:
1.    Define the problem of overcontrol according to the four core deficits and the biosocial theory for overcontrol
2.    Describe what Radical Openness is (and is not)
3.    Describe the RO-DBT treatment hierarchy and modes of treatment
4.    Evaluate whether RO DBT might be a suitable treatment for your clients
5.    Understand what a social signal is and how they are important in RO DBT
6. Recognize the unique therapist stance in RO DBT
