    Radically Open DBT Skills

    RO DBT significantly differs from other treatment approaches, most notably by linking the communicative functions of emotional expression to the formation of close social bonds and via skills targeting social-signaling and changing neurophysiological arousal. RO DBT treatment involves both individual treatment sessions and skills training classes, and centers around five OC themes: inhibited and disingenuous emotional expression; hyper-detailed focused and overly cautious behavior; rigid and rule-governed behavior; aloof and distant style of relating; and high social comparison and envy/bitterness.

    You will learn:

    • A range of RO-DBT Skills 
    • Receptivity and Openness to new experience and disconfirming feedback in order to learn.
    • Flexible-control in order to adapt to changing environmental conditions.
    • Intimacy and social-connectedness (with at least one other person) based on premises that species survival required capacities to form long-lasting bonds and work in groups.
