member at the Wright Institute and practicing psychotherapist in the Bay Area
specializing in complex trauma, MI, addiction counseling, suicide prevention,
and much more. In addition to clinical work, Dr. Dempsey trained community

and DBT both evidence-based practices are with well-researched and have impressive
outcomes for treating complex developmental and behavioral disorders: substance
use disorders, personality disorders, eating disorders, and trauma-related
issues, to name a few. Given the commonality between the two approaches as well
as their distinctive strengths, MI and DBT have the potential to increase
positive clinical outcomes when we can harness the power of both approaches. In
the workshop, we will explore when to apply each approach and we will look at
times when it might be helpful to add some dialectical thinking to the
motivational engagement, and some strategically applied skills to standard DBT
interventions. Join us to help build your skills in both approaches and
consider how you can flexibly and effectively combine both approaches in your
daily clinical work.
participants will learn to:
which approach: motivational interviewing or DBT to use at each stage of change
for each client concern.
the dialectical components of motivational interviewing and practice
identifying when and how to use “double-sided” responses to further build
dialectical awareness and momentum among clients in early stages of change.
applying the motivational micro skills when facilitating a DBT skills individual
and group training session for clients enrolled in DBT treatment.
when to offer DBT skills when engaging clients in conversations about change
