Service Description

This course provides an in-depth training of the DBT skills of Interpersonal Effectiveness outlined in the DBT Skills Handouts and Worksheets: Second Edition by Marsha M. Linehan. Interpersonal Effectiveness is a form of social skills training that focuses on teaching assertive communication strategies. In this experiential skills training you will learn essential skills to assist clients in establishing relationships, strengthening existing ones, and ending destructive relationships. As this is an experiential course, you can expect to learn by doing: You will explore your own boundaries and beliefs around interpersonal relationships, while learning therapeutic tools to implement with clients. This includes topics such as how to effectively ask for what you want (or say no), while also maintaining respect for yourself and others; self-validation; perspective taking and validation of others; and behaviour change strategies. This training is open to clinicians and students with no prior DBT experience and is also appropriate for those with intermediate knowledge. This is a suitable course for graduates of the Abbreviated / Intensive Tracks. Group Discussion and Application to Clinical Practice will be woven into skills training in each session. DBT encourages home practice to generalize the skills we learn in Group. For this reason, homework is assigned and reviewed in each session.
