DBT Workshop – What you will learn:

  • What is DBT (especially the D)?
  • What does it mean to be emotionally dysregulated, and how do people develop chronic emotion dysregulation?
  • How to be in the room with a dysregulated client and navigate intense emotions in a nutrition session
  • What undercontrolled clients need from their RDs (hint – empathy, patience, and skills!)
  • How to think dialectically by teaching our clients (and ourselves) to overcome all-or-nothing thinking
  • Change and Acceptance-based strategies – the art of shifting between the two
  • Applying Core Mindfulness Skills and Wise Mind in ED Recovery (clients need to be aware of what they are thinking, feeling, and experiencing in order to make changes)
  • How to help ourselves and our clients cultivate a non-judgmental stance – with food, body, exercise, self, and each other
  • Radical Acceptance: The Gateway Skill for Body Acceptance
  • Distress Tolerance skills galore (“just sit with it” isn’t enough guidance – they need to know how)
  • Emotion Regulation skills: a game-changer for identifying triggers for ED behavior (yes, RDs can talk about emotions in nutrition session!)
