Radically Open Dialectical Behavior Therapy (RO-DBT)

FEBRUARY 3, 2021 | 9:00am – 12:15pm

Self-control, the ability to inhibit competing urges, impulses, or behaviors is highly valued by most societies. However, excessive self-control has been linked to social isolation, aloof interpersonal functioning, maladaptive perfectionism, constricted emotional expressions, and difficult-to-treat mental health problems, such as anorexia nervosa, obsessive-compulsive personality disorder, and refractory depression. RO-DBT contends that emotional loneliness represents the core problem for overcontrol, not emotion dysregulation. RO-DBT targets social signaling deficits with the overall goal to help individuals connect with at least one other individual in a deep and meaningful way.
