The Workshop Presented by Professor Owen (researched by TranSeed Publishing)

This workshop will provide the following.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy has been used for the treatment of people with multiple psychosocial disorders, including those who are chronically suicidal. Many of these patients have co-occurring substance use disorders. In order to treat these disorders, DBT was further developed to incorporate concepts that promoted abstinence and reduced the length of and negative impact of relapses. The adaptation addressed many addictive disorders other than substance use disorders such as sexual addiction, food addiction, Internet addiction, and gambling addictions.
