Course Overview

Via live interactive webinar
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.

I love how thorough the training was, especially when discussing DBT interventions. I can now feel confident in using the interventions with so many of my clients, not just those who have bipolar disorder

I had studied DBT some, but never in relation to a Bipolar diagnosis. The techniques and considerations given were very helpful! Treating the person and the coping behavior, rather than their diagnosis as a definition of who they are is an amazing lens to learn from! These techniques can help anyone with Bipolar, their loved ones, or anyone experiencing life stressors. Sheri was very easy to listen to and the time flew by.

I was able to immediately start using what I learned in training with my client that was scheduled after the training. She was very interested in the mood chart and I will definitely be exploring the various resources the instructor provided. I liked her own case examples, her use of resources and comfort level with the population she spoke about.
