Opal: Food+Body Wisdom Lecture Series

An Introduction to Radically Open DBT

with Professor Tom Lynch, PhD

 

Date: March 4, 2017
Time: 9:00am – 4:00pm
Location: The Hotel Deca, Seattle WA
1 hour break for lunch
Cocktail hour at Opal after the event

Intended Audience: Clinicians and students that work or intend to work with individuals that may suffer from overcontrol tendencies. Includes but is not limited to psychologists, psychiatrists, therapists, and dietitians.

Self-control, the ability to inhibit competing urges, impulses, or behaviors is highly valued by most societies. However, excessive self-control has been linked to social isolation, aloof interpersonal functioning, maladaptive perfectionism, constricted emotional expressions, and difficult-to- treat mental health problems, such as anorexia nervosa, obsessive-compulsive personality disorder and refractory depression. The aim of this workshop is to introduce clinicians to the theoretical foundations and new skills underlying Radically Open-Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (RO-DBT) for disorders of overcontrol. The biosocial theory for overcontrol posits that heightened threat sensitivity and diminished reward sensitivity transact with early family experiences emphasizing “mistakes as intolerable” and “self-control as imperative” to result in an overcontrolled coping style that limits opportunities to learn new skills and exploit positive social reinforcers. A novel thesis linking the communicative functions of emotional expression to the formation of close social bonds will be introduced, as well as new skills emphasizing receptivity, self-enquiry and flexible responding. Using slides, handouts, video clips, and role-plays, new assessment and treatment interventions will be taught including 1) diagnosing over-control 2) targeting social signaling as the key mechanism of change 3) teaching therapists how to recognize and treat “disguised demands” – common indirect OC social signaling behaviors.

Training Objectives

Upon completion of this one-day training, participants will be able to:

  1. Explain a new biosocial theory for OC
  2. Describe a novel treatment mechanism positing open expression = trust = social connectedness
  3. Describe new RO-DBT treatment strategies designed to enhance willingness for self-inquiry and flexible responding.
  4. Describe the four core deficits of Overcontrol
  5. Describe the RO-DBT treatment structure
  6. Describe the RO-DBT treatment hierarchy
  7. Explain the most common indirect social signaling styles in OC

Cocktails will be served at Opal after the event
