DBT for Neurodivergent Clients: Adapted Techniques to Improve Emotional Regulation and Interpersonal Skills in Clients with ADHD, ASD, and more! – Live Webinar
September 14, 2023 @ 6:00 am - 2:00 pm MST
Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) has helped thousands of therapists improve their client’s life skills quicker and more effectively than they ever thought possible…
…but if you work with clients who are neuro divergent, you could be missing key ingredients to successfully integrate DBT practices into their lives.
Whether it be talking too fast or not giving enough processing time, using analogies or idioms that don’t work, or even expressing frustrations over client manner of participating, you might unwittingly be perceived as shutting them down or trying to fix them and make them neurotypical rather than equip them to build an abundant life in their own way.
Join neuro diverse speaker and DBT expert Hannah Smith, as she shows you highly effective ways to adapt this powerful treatment for this population and learn how to coach these skills in an accessible & inclusive way.
- Helpful tools to present DBT concepts to your neuro divergent clients and make them more accessible and useable
- Client-focused ways to target DBT skills, such as emotion regulation and interpersonal effectiveness that do not come across as “be more neurotypical”
- Increased confidence and competence in identifying and working with key aspects of neurodivergence
- …and so much more!
Clients are crying out for skills to help them manage the overwhelm but not so they can “be neurotypical” – and DBT, like no other therapy, includes whole-person/whole brained skills that can do this.
