FREE CEU: Understanding and Utilizing Dialectical Behavior Therapy Skills in a Behavior Analytic Way
Presenter: Julia Brzozowski, M.S., BCBA, LBA

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is an evidenced-based psychotherapy that has been utilized to treat a variety of mental disorders such as anxiety, depression, and mood disorders. DBT works to alter harmful behavioral patterns by operating under the core principles of accepting one’s reality and implementing change-oriented strategies. While research is still emerging on the use of DBT in individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), the prevalence of comorbid diagnoses that are targeted in DBT occurs at high rates in those with ASD. The purpose of this presentation is to familiarize participants with the concepts being applied in DBT and give examples of how to implement those concepts in a behavior-analytic way. By combining DBT skills with behavior analytic practices we can work to reduce harmful behaviors and create meaningful changes in the lives of our clients.

Trigger Warning: Topics of self-harm, alcohol/drug abuse, eating disorders, and suicidal ideations will be briefly discussed but is not the main focus of this presentation.
