This course is designed to introduce students to the foundations of Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT). It includes an exploration of human psychosocial development in the context of diverse communities. Students are introduced to frameworks for Behavioral Activation, Dialectics, and Acceptance. They also learn how those frameworks apply to providing DBT-informed therapy and assessment. Throughout the course emphasis is placed on the importance of comprehensive, culturally sensitive, individualized assessment and intervention.
