DBT is a scientifically supported treatment incorporating cognitive behavioral theory and Eastern meditation. DBT has been successfully applied to a variety of psychological conditions. Most notably, mindfulness has become a common addition to standard CBT. DBT's skills based approach to manage intense emotions and it's focus on increasing motivation and therapy engagement makes it a potentially valuable addition to treatment. This presentation will introduce attendees to the principles and techniques of DBT and discuss its specific application to OCD Related Disorders to enhance gains.
