In Week 7 of the Virtual Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)-Informed Seminar Series, Dr. Ventura will teach on "Change Strategies: CBT, Behavior Chain Analysis, and DBT Emotion Regulation and Interpersonal Effectiveness Skills." Objectives for this week's meeting include:

  • Describing the different DBT change strategies, which are grounded in CBT,
  • Gaining an overview of DBT behavior chain analysis and how to use in clinical work, and
  • Identifying DBT Emotion Regulation and Interpersonal Effectiveness skills.


Dr. Ventura will teach a time-limited seminar series with the focus of instructing mental health clinicians on triaging suicide and introducing various Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) strategies. The course's overall goals are: 1) Teaching knowledge about suicide assessment and interventions based on research and evidenced-based treatments, 2) Teaching clinicians on the overview of DBT, including the four treatment modalities, foundational assumptions, and hierarchy of treatment targets when working with clients with multiple problems and high-risk, 3) Teaching knowledge of the four DBT Skills modules (i.e., Mindfulness, Emotion Regulation, Interpersonal Skills and Distress Tolerance) to treat suicidal and difficult to treat clients in clinical practice, and 4) Preparing participants to use core acceptance and change strategies of DBT to inform clinical work.
