Share Article

Clearview will hold its second DBT skills workshop on July 29, 2011.

“For therapists working with dysregulated clients, DBT provides powerful tools to assist them with cognitive, emotional, and behavioral change,” said Michael Roy, MSW, founder and executive director of the Clearview Treatment Programs.

Clearview Treatment Programs, a premier treatment center for Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) in Los Angeles, is presenting “DBT Skills: An Experiential Workshop” on Friday, July 29, 2011.

The DBT skills workshop will provide participants practical knowledge of Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), a method of BPD treatment specifically developed for BPD, and its clinical application. After a general introduction to DBT, participants will break into small groups to experience the four DBT skills: mindfulness, interpersonal effectiveness, emotional regulation, and distress tolerance.

“For therapists working with dysregulated clients, DBT provides powerful tools to assist them with cognitive, emotional, and behavioral change,” said Michael Roy, MSW, founder and executive director of Clearview Treatment Programs and Clearview Women’s Center for Borderline Personality and Emotional Disorders.

Featured speakers at the DBT skills workshop include members of Clearview’s clinical team: Alina Gorgorian, Ph.D.; Nicole Riddle, Psy.D.; Nicole Zaha, Psy.D.; and Susan Guillou, MFT. Clearview’s team of DBT therapists has been intensively trained by Behavioral Tech, Marsha Linehan’s training institute, or UCLA Harbor Hospital’s DBT training program.
