May 1, 2015: Boldly Go into the Next Generation of CBT: Mindfulness, Acceptance, and Dialectical Behavior Therapy for BFRBs
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) has been shown to be effective at treating Body-Focused Repetitive Behaviors (BFRBs). CBT works by teaching you new ways of responding to your behaviors, regulating your emotions, and changing your environment. Members of the TLC Scientific Advisory Board have now begun applying a new generation of CBT treatments to BFRB problems. This session will introduce you to these treatments, specifically Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) as well as Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT). Participants will learn what makes ACT and DBT different from traditional CBT, understand the scientific support for these treatments, and participate in real demonstrations of ACT and DBT techniques.
