Course Details

This interactive online course teaches practical concepts and strategies that you can use in challenging therapy situations.  It helps expand your clinical skillset and enhances your knowledge so you feel grounded and effective in complex therapy situations, and aids in resiliency against reactivity and burnout.

Conducting psychotherapy creates the potential for reactive and nonempathic behavior in even the most compassionate therapy providers. This course reviews principles and application of mindfulness and other dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) skills, the utility of incorporating developmental and psychodynamic concepts into the treatment of challenging cases, and much more.

Course assignments include online lectures, readings, interactive discussion forums, and weekly conference calls with faculty and other participants. All course content is 100% mobile-friendly so you can participate whenever your schedule allows.

Course materials are available beginning on April 5, 2021, and all online course work must be completed by May 10, 2021.  New course assignments are released each week, and you can finish the preceding week’s materials at any time to unlock the next week’s materials.
