What you are going to learn
Radically Open DBT
Radically Open Dialectical Behavior Therapy (RO DBT) is a transdiagnostic treatment which targets a spectrum of disorders characterised by excessive inhibitory control or overcontrol (OC). It is intended for clinicians treating clients with such chronic problems as refractory depression, anorexia nervosa and obsessive-compulsive personality disorder.
The treatment is fully manualised (Lynch, 2018a; 2018b) and the feasibility, acceptability, and efficacy of RO DBT are evidence-based, supported by more than twenty five years of clinical translational research.
What RO DBT Targets:
Inhibited and disingenuous emotional expression
Hyper-detailed focused and overly cautious behaviour
Rigid and rule-governed behaviour
Aloof and distant style of relating
High social comparison and envy/bitterness.
