Open Module - Mindfulness skills in dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT) for borderline personality disorder (BPD)
Ruth Baer, Professor of Psychology, University of Kentucky

Isis Education Centre, Warneford Hospital, Headington, Oxford
Hosted by Dr Nargis Islam (email@example.com)
Mindfulness is helpful in managing a variety of psychological symptoms, but many people with borderline personality disorder (BPD) have difficulty with lengthy meditation practices because of the intensity of their negative thoughts and emotions. For this reason, dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT), a leading treatment for BPD, incorporates training in behavioural mindfulness skills that do not rely on formal meditation. This talk will provide an introduction to the mindfulness skills in DBT, how they are taught, and their therapeutic effects.
This event is open to all health care professionals.
Please join us after the presentation for light refreshments.
