Radically Open DBT (RO-DBT) is an offshoot of traditional DBT which has risen in popularity for treating disorders of overcontrol. With over 20 years of research, RO-DBT is increasingly being utilized to target recalcitrant issues such as anorexia nervosa, obsessive compulsive and avoidant personality disorders, self-harm, autism spectrum disorder, and treatment resistant depression. In this presentation, we will introduce the RO-DBT model, assist attendees in determining how to conceptualize patients using a RO-DBT framework, and how to identify candidates for the treatment.


Upon the completion of this workshop, participants will be able to:

1) Assess and pinpoint client coping styles on a spectrum of over versus under controlled temperament;

2) Identify appropriate candidates for RO-DBT;

3) Describe how an overcontrolled coping style leads to emotional loneliness.
