Navigating the Dialectics in Recovery: Eating Disorders and DBT
Presented by: Jancey Wickstrom, LCSW
Dialectical Behavior Therapy is centered on the dialectical tension between acceptance and change. In this talk, participants will learn the basic tenets of DBT, and will practice applying those tenets to eating disorder treatment. Of particular focus will be utilizing the acceptance skills of DBT to help clients manage the extreme emotional discomfort encountered in eating disorder recovery. Mindfulness and distress tolerance skills will be discussed, and participants will walk away with skills to implement in their practices immediately. Common clinical concerns related to eating disorders and behavioral approaches will be reviewed. Clinicians are encouraged to come prepared with case consultation questions.
