Introduction to Radically Open Dialectical Behavior Therapy (RO DBT) for Disorders of Over-Control

Description

Radically Open Dialectical Behavior Therapy (RO DBT) is an evidence-based transdiagnostic treatment designed to increase openness, flexibility and social connectedness in people who experience mental health problems characterized by excessive inhibitory control or maladaptive overcontrol (Lynch, 2018a). These clients typically suffer from social isolation, perfectionism, and severe and difficult-to-treat mental health problems, including but not limited to chronic depression, anorexia nervosa, autism spectrum disorders and personality disorders. RO DBT has been developed and researched over the past 30 years. Current RO DBT research, training, and clinical work has extended to different age groups (adolescents, older adults, young adults), different disorders (anorexia, chronic depression, autism, personality disorders, treatment-resistant anxiety), different cultures and countries in Europe, North America, South America and Asia, and different settings (forensic, inpatient, outpatient).

This 3 hour live interactive webinar gives mental health practitioners who are not yet familiar with RO DBT an overview of what type of treatment RO DBT is. The aim is for clinicians to be able to make a more informed decision after attending this webinar on whether RO DBT is suitable for their clients.

Instructor

Lindsay Johnson. LPC. ACS. MSEd, is a licensed professional counselor and approved clinical supervisor in New Jersey. She completed her Master’s in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Fordham University and her doctorate in Educational Leadership from Rowan University. 

 

She has worked in a variety of clinical settings treating a broad range of concerns, but has a strong passion for treating college students and young adults. Lindsay serves as the Assistant Director of Well-Being at Rowan University, creating and implementing programs, policies and practices to increase social connectedness and infuse well-being into all aspects of the institution in order to support student and employee resiliency and the ability to thrive. She also has a private practice where she specializes in disorders of over-control, treating clients in both individual and skills class settings utilizing RODBT. 

 

Lindsay is trained in DBT, IPT, CBT and EMDR.  However, she feels most excited and interested in her work pertaining to RO DBT and how it can enhance and improve well-being. Lindsay is a member of the RODBT Senior Clinician Team, has presented on RODBT at national and international conferences, has provided numerous RODBT one-day trainings, and has developed a variety of RODBT-based workshops for higher educational settings.
