Course Description:
Bipolar Disorder (BD) is a serious mental health problem that typically creates chaos in an individual’s life, often leading to risky and impulsive behaviors, damaged relationships and careers, substance use problems, hospitalization, and even suicide. Based on Sheri Van Dijk’s ground-breaking work on using DBT with Bipolar Disorder, this webinar will briefly review the different types of bipolar disorder and what to look for to help someone get a proper diagnosis and treatment.

You’ll also learn about the existing psycho-therapies being used to treat bipolar disorder, before looking at the efficacy of Dialectical Behavior Therapy in treating this illness, and delving more into how to teach some of the DBT skills most pertinent to clients with BD.

Bipolar disorder is a serious mental health issue that most mental health professionals will be asked to treat. Learn practical skills and step-by-step guidance in applying DBT in its treatment. Sheri’s clinical expertise, experiences and books on the subject all get expressed in this illuminating course.
Learning Objectives:
Upon the completion of this course, participants will be able to:
  • Describe psychoeducation about BD to clients regarding their diagnosis; as well as rates, and aetiology of the disorder
  • Identify the co-morbidities, suicidality and other difficulties in living with BD
  • Apply at least 3 current evidence-based treatments for BD
  • Understand the theoretical rationale for using Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) in treating BD
  • Recall the basics of some of the main DBT skills used in treating BD.
