Join us for a Neuropsychiatric Workshop for physicians, nurses, psychologists, social workers, counselors, and other mental health professionals.
Presented by Andrea Gottlieb, PhD, and Sarah Loeffler, LCSW-C
Neuropsychiatric consequences that follow a traumatic brain injury (TBI) can be debilitating from behavioral, cognitive, and emotional standpoints. Individuals with TBI can also suffer from impulsivity, leading to problems like loss of jobs and troubles in their interpersonal relationships. Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is a psychotherapy originally used to treat individuals with borderline personality disorder and chronic suicidality. Research has supported that standard DBT is effective for people experiencing chronic emotion dysregulation and complex-difficult to treat mental health problems.
Given the strong focus in DBT on teaching and generalizing new skill as well as the importance placed on providers balancing acceptance and change, an adapted DBT treatment presents itself as an appropriate therapeutic approach for individuals with TBI. This presentation will discuss an adapted DBT-informed psychotherapy, strongly focused on patient skills acquisition, improves the way patients with TBI function and cope with their lives, specifically in their ability to cope with stress, emotion regulation capabilities, connectedness with their social supports, and overall satisfaction in life.
After attending this lecture, attendees will be able to:
- Identify executive skills dysfunction in individuals with traumatic brain injury (TBI).
- Define components of standard Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) that apply to TBI.
- Demonstrate the ability to use adapted DBT skills training with people with executive dysfunction.
This activity will be broadcasted LIVE - the evaluation will be online until August 19, 2022. The link to attend the broadcast and to access the slides will be emailed to registrants.
