Participants specifically learn how DBT for substance use disorders (DBT-SUD), when applied to populations with comorbid disorders, differs from standard DBT for BPD clients in the way that DBT is targeted, how behavioral skills are taught in skills training group, how to engage clients in therapy at the beginning of treatment, strategies for not losing clients during treatment, and how therapists are supported when clients are in danger of dropping out of therapy. This workshop is intended for those who have knowledge of standard DBT.
